The online festival-which started at 14:00 GMT +12 on 4 December-crossed the globe, stopping in 12 time zones to see how voluntary action is making a difference in tackling challenges related to environment, hunger, education, maternal health, gender equality, and HIV/AIDs.
Fifth stop (GMT +4 to +2): Kenya and Cyprus.

This island faces increasing water shortages due to population growth and climate change. 8 minutes
