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

Mama Helen

Mama Helen was one woman who feared to face the public because of the problem she had.This mama had every large and long breath that almost reached her knees.She walked bent because of that and this was very tiresome and as aresult she would just sit in her home or rather house without getting up.Everything was done for including feding and washing her. One time her sister Eunice suggested that they seek for help through the broadcasting station with the help of doctors.This was avery good idea and so they went to Nairobi National Hospital where the doctors agreed to have an operation done for her. The amount received was enough and had even surpassed the mark .Helen underwent the breasts suggery and today she has normal size breasts and she no longer fears to walk out and socialize.
