The 20-year-old rapper, actor, and songwriter Jaden Smith has been supplying the residents of Flint, Michigan with clean drinking water. The water crisis in Flint began back in 2014, the government still hasn’t found a proper solution to help.

On Saturday, Smith visited a church in Flint to unveil a sensible solution to residents — the Water Box. Smith and his partners, Just Water, and 501CThree came together and created a portable water filtration system that could fill a 5-gallon jug within 30 seconds.

Although the Water Box isn’t a permanent solution, Smith is determined to help the residents of Flint. He is still working with the community and different companies to find a long-term solution for the community’s lack of drinking water.
