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

Free Medication Workshop

Some time two months ago, there had been an outbreak of waterborne diseases mainly being cholera. This disease proved to be dangerous as it had consumed lives of some children in the area. Many had contracted the disease and for sure it seemed to be dangerous. However a certain organization named WEAEP situated at a nearby town come and really helped us. They held a free medication workshop at a local primary school.Very many people turned up for the treatment and many got healed. People were also sensitized on methods of prepairing clean water for consumption such as boiling water. Things like maintaining hygiene, i.e washing of hands after visiting the toilet. As the community was healed they also learnt how to prevent cholera for now they are living happily.
