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

Water Shortage

There is a problem of water. There is a water shortage in our District & village and something has been done to improve the water problem atleast for now. For many years now people were forced to go out to the rivers where they access water for domestic use. These source of water is sometimes not effective and viable because it carries with it dirt and disease causing organisms from other areas along as it moves. My area hasprings which van be protected hence clean water for drinking.Efforts have been done to improve storage and use of clean water.
