In this episode, Hugo goes to the slum of Kibera in Nairobi where he volunteers and cares for orphans affected by HIV. Deeply moved by the experience he pledges to raise funds to renovate and re-equip a medical clinic and community centre for a local charity. As this challenging project evolves it becomes clear that with just one week to complete the task, tensions, emotions and stress will be running high. During the renovation he is faced with many obstacles including cultural differences, personal threats and corruption but his tenacity and spirit guide him through.
Introduction by Sir Ranulph Fiennes; interview with Jeremy Hunt MP.
