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

A Good Samaritan Timely.

My name is Lydia Wakhuyu. I lost my parents during my development stages of my life, so I do not even know how they looked like. Kind people have been the reason for my being fine until 2006 when Kakamega orphans care centre came in handy for me. Te charitable Home took to uplift me in all basic support lines. They gave me accommodation, food, security and took me to school. Up until now I am in High school being supported by the Home. They pay for me school fees, give me all moral support and as I near my exam time I am confident that I will make it. They intend to carry on with the support that will take me through to college to assure me of hope in my life.
