In honor of Facebook's 10th anniversary, we told the story of a connection between two people in Congo and Manitoba, Canada.
We cast from hundreds of people to find the story of Brent Murray. Born with clubfoot, Brent had his own surgery as a baby. As an adult, he saw an ad for a T-shirt sponsoring MercyShips, a fleet of hospital ships that travel to remote regions in need of medical care.

We travelled to the Republic of Congo and told the story of Loic Mbeze, a child who had a similar surgery to Brent. Loic was born with knock knees, and without surgery, he would have lost his ability to walk.
