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

I Got Hope At The End Of The Tunnel

For me to still be alive now, it is one of the biggest testimony on earth. I was pushed to the center of the worse experiences in life with a combination of lucky situations since my childhood. I thought after the dismiss of my parents in 2005 that everything hated me i also gave up fully on myself. When hope in zion children center came to pick me it was like a dream. The fact that they were able to liberate me from very severe environment they have always been able to carry me through with the basic needs like: food and clothing, Education which they continue providing for me a permanent change in my life. I intend to achieve my life dreams more hopefully.
