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

Hope Was Provided At The Hour Of Need .

I am the widow of the late Mr Ouma whose son was advantaged in 2010 to be taken by Hope in Zion Children's Centre. The coming in of this centre was a good deliverance since i have no land and i am very poor, with 3 other children to take care of. This centre has opened a new chapter of hope for my son and my family as a whole. He is given good care, every basic need being provided and he goes to school to develop hope for his future.Through that he might just be the hope for me in my old age as well. My prayer is that this centre will find increased funding as its work of sacrifice touches the whole community.
