A drought has settled in the area around the orphanage where Boniface lives. There are long lines at the tiny spring where people get their water, and suddenly, the orphans are pushed to the back of the line. Boniface's houseparent, Henry, tells him that the people were mean out of fear - they feared there would not be enough water for their families. When the building of the orphanage's well is completed, Boniface has an idea to help the villagers. A lovely story of kindness and heart, showing that through compassion, true generosity can spring up.
