The Fading Community That Was Rescued

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of THE FADING COMMUNITY THAT WAS RESCUED It is known by most people that problems are there that are encoured in different ways and need rightful solutions to free them from those problems. The wall known Muraka Community was on e of the unfortunate Community that was faced with a fire disaster problem, that occcured in 1999 on the 4th of June at night. It caused Mars death of people, destruction of property and loss of shelter to most of the villagers. It left many orphans, widows and others vulnerable. Up to date the cause of the dangerous inferno is not known by anyone neither big nor small and so it is a fairy tale to all. By good luck we had a neighbour who was a worker at the UNHCR organisation so he informed them and so they came and actually they gave us much support by aiding us with food shelter that were tents and clothings. All in all my gratitude goes to the UNHCR organisation that intervened in our situation that had developed to be a dillema and by so continue helping the needy and those in trouble like we were.
