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

A Programme To Aid The Old In Society

My name is Leah Matwang'a from Mayungu area in Kakamega North.I am hopeful beneficiary of the old age support programme which has stalled.It was meant to start two years ago uniformly in western for persons above 65 years old.For us it hasn't although it is on for other areas. If this programme takes off i would have a hope since i am needy at 66 cant be able to go over any economic activities strongly like before.It remains my prayer that the world bank and government who were behind this ideawill bring it into action sooner than later.
