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

Diseases Outbreak

This happened sometimes ago when there was an out break of cholera in a community. This was as result of no good hygiene practices. The people used dirty water for drinking, cooking and even bathing. The chief of the community saw all these and asked for help from a certain health organisation.The organisation hired some of the people in the community to help in cleaning the environment. The people who were already affected with cholera were taken to hospital where they got treatment. At least everything worked well ans since then there had not been any outbreak of disease. The people of the community thanked both the chief and the organisation. The people lived healthy and happy as they became wealthy.
