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

Helping Out Hiv/aids Patients

My name is Ndutah Mulongo.i can testify that that the people living with HIV/Aids in my home region had a reason to smile sometime back last year after a certain organization named WEWASAFO paid them a visit.This visit saw them being supplied with necessities like blankets,food,clothing and many other things.They also bought ARVs to the patients and have been constantly educating them on ways to do in order to avoid dying early.The things taught on this part were regular exercise,undertaking good diet and also avoiding bad sexual behaviour.Actually the number of deaths due to HIV/AIDS has reduced as compared to the previous years where we didn't have these services.the organization has really influenced the victims positively.
