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

Child Abuse

Child abuse arises due to the fact that parents have either neglected or do not care about the lives of the children. Child abuse can be in form of physical assault to the child or early employment (at an age lower than 18) In Dandora, most people who transport meat to and from butcheries are young underage children who claim to be employed by the owners of the butcheries. They are given huge portions of the animal meat to transport to various places e.g hotels and restaurants but they get peanuts in return in form of payment. Because the children should be in school, there are attempts to always block them from being employed at the butcheries. This is a challenge because the butcheries still deny having employed underage children. They are frequent check-ups by the police to ensure that no child transports meat but more still needs to be done.
