There, Doc witnessed a government-sponsored genocide where the number-one weapon wasn’t bullets-it was water. With limited funds, Doc realized that he couldn’t build new wells costing $10,000 a pop, but he could hire local workers to restore a damaged well for a mere $50 each. He’d found his mission.
