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

The Poor Girl

In the House next to my place lived a girl. She was good and humble. She went to school and as i knew her she was so hard working. I used to wonder what made this girl have problem with her father whom she was living with. One day i gathered courage and decided to ask her what was the problem. The story she told me was so painful to hear. She told me that her father always ask her to sleep with her but when she refuses she could have it rough. I decided to be of help to her. I went to an organization where such issues are addressed. This is 'POLICOM' .she was assisted and now i am happy to see her carrying on well.
