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

Drug Abuse

In Kakamega people were really addicted with drugs. They were drinking until they sleep on the roads, others were killed because they used to drink alcohol without paying the money for what they have taken. Within three years, our minister Raila Omolo Odinga came to our community to help our people. He was giving good advise that helped our people. He promised to buy land for those who lacked land. All the people we pleased to him.
