Will Smith was left overwhelmed during a recent charity trip to Ethiopia with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, hailing the visit as "incredibly eye-opening".
The couple flew to Tigray to witness first-hand how money they helped raise for the Charity: Water organisation has helped locals.
They visited communities to see new wells which have improved the residents' lives, and Smith is pleased with the positive reaction to the project.
He says, "Our trip to Ethiopia with Charity: Water was an incredibly eye-opening and authentic experience. It was extraordinary to meet and spend time with the people of Tigray and to see first-hand how clean water changes everything for these communities."
