Jaden Smith‘s JUST foundation is bringing clean water to Flint, Michigan.

JUST has teamed up with the local First Trinity Missionary Baptist church to bring a mobile filtration system, called “The Water Box,” to Flint. The system will remove lead and other contaminants from water, making it safe to drink.

Flint has been without clean drinking water since 2014 when the government tapped the Flint River for the water supply without it being treated for corrosion. As a result, lead leached from pipes into the drinking water.

According to Page Six, the First Trinity church has provided locals with over 5 million bottles of water in that time, but donations are falling.
