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

A Needy Situation

My name is Silvia Akumu.I lost my father way back in in 1998 and was left with an old mother to help me but life was all along been a staggering affair. Basic needs have always been hard to access.We hardly found food to eat and the house we lived in was leaking which was grass thatched .I went to school in Lwanda secondary school from 2007 and school fees was a mountain to climb. I was often out of school due to school fees. When an Organization called APHIA II westen got involved to assist me in 2008..It was the greatest relief. I am indeed needy and would request the kind gesture of a sponsor needy and would request the kind gesture of sponsor with her heart for the needy to consider serving of poor family.
