Cheru’s Story

Cheru’s Story

by Alvin Manalac January 9, 2020 360, VR, Entertainment

Millions of people around the world lack access to clean water. Sometimes the only water source is miles away (on average 6km) and shared with animals. Because of the latter children are often sick. In addition, the walk for water keeps them from attending school. World Vision is committed to change that. A WV Communications team decided to highlight the struggles of families that lack a clean water source using 360 video. The local Kenyan staff found such a family, the Lotuliapus family, in Kesot village in the West Pokot area. And a little five year old girl named Cheru became the symbol of this struggle.

Now, we know not only that planets exist orbiting stars other than the Sun, but also that they are likely more numerous than the stars in the sky, presenting a diverse range of environments. Current research has shown us that some of these distant worlds are potentially able to support liquid water, and therefore life.

THE WORLD’S HIGHEST LOCATION-BASED VR EXPERIENCE

The View from The Shard is the open-air viewing platform on the 72nd floor from which visitors can experience panoramic views of London. Eager to integrate virtual reality into the attraction, The View from The Shard turned to Happy Finish to help them create a thrilling addition to the observation deck.
