   According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), more than one billion people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water. What's worse is that nearly 5,000 children die every day because of drinking dirty water. While a few charities and organizations have drawn attention to the crisis, this issue has gone largely unnoticed. One mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter is fighting to change that.

   根據聯合國開發計劃署,世界上有十億多人無法取得安全的飲用水。更糟的是每天有將近五千個孩童因為喝到不乾淨的水而死亡。雖然有一些慈善團體和組織已經關注到這個危機,但是這個問題大致上還是被忽視。一位綜合武術格鬥家正在奮鬥以改變現況。

  Around six years ago, Justin Wren was enjoying a successful career as a fighter for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when he decided to do something greater than just fight for himself. The Texas native packed his bags and traveled to the heart of the Democratic Republic of Congo to fight for the Mbuti Pygmies. Wren soon found himself in the middle of a war-torn country and a Pygmy population that had no way of getting fresh food and safe drinking water. The MMA fighter had to somehow figure out how to bring fresh water to the remote Pygmy tribes, deal with the dishonest local government, and keep himself from getting sick in the process. It was a task easier said than done.

  大約在六年前,賈斯汀‧倫在終極格鬥錦標賽裡大放異彩時,他決定做一些更棒的事而不是僅僅為自己奮鬥。這位美國德州的當地人打包他的行李,跋涉到剛果民主共和國的中心地帶為姆布蒂俾格米人奮鬥。倫很快地發現自己身處在一個飽受戰火摧殘的國家和無法取得新鮮食物和安全飲用水的俾格米人之中。這位綜合武術格鬥家必須要想出如何把乾淨的水送到偏遠的俾格米部落、應付不真誠的當地政府、並且使自己在過程中免於疾病侵襲的方法。這是一個說來容易做來難的任務。
