Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Safe & Clean Water For Use

I had never known how dirty the water I have been drinking is until recently when a simple test to carry out how safe drinking water is was carried out in my village just to demostrate on how unhealthy we may get and the risks and diseases we may acquire. Vestergaard officials did the demonstration to our 200 people who watched in amazement for they had earlier uttered that they were only using clean water the the same one used for demostration. They advised us to use lifestraw cans when purify clean water to drink and offered some to us.
