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

Physical Needs-through The Group Initiative

Willyckster Kwatera is my name and I am a single lady as we separeted with my husband after he walked away and got united to another lady. He frustrated me so much leaving me with the burden to care for 5 children. However when we formed Jesus Junction Support Group in 2009 it became the vehicle that could ferry me to my next level. I found relief and a boast to my general stability after most of my needs and those of the family could be met through funds I got from the Group. We have been doing merry go round which has given us quite money for needs at hand. I have been able to buy food, plant and harvest maize, do business leading to a security level that has sustained us at large.
