UNICEF in New Zealand is sending a solar powered desalination plant to Tuvalu.

It's to help provide fresh drinking water to a school which was threatened with closure because of the drought crisis in the country.

The unit can produce six thousand litres of fresh water a day from seawater, and will also supply a health clinic in the capital, Funafuti.
