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

Cleanliness

The importance of staying clean and washing our hands after visiting the toilet has always been told to us by our parents at home and teachers at school.This was proven true when my friend visited the hospital after falling ill during a short period at home.After following up on him the doctor told me he suffered from typhoid brought about by unclean water. When the news got to school the teacher urged us to be more clean in everything we do us we had witness first hand that being clean is the only way to avoid such sickness.And my teacher Ms Karimi always says cleanliness is next to godliness.
