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

Helping Orphans And Widows

In my community, there are many cases of men dying generally leaving orphans and widows. There was a need for one of this left family. The widow left could not affort for her own blanket for covering herself and her children. Our organization 'DESCIPLES' made an arrangement for bringing some money through the 'HARAMBEE' from our desciple members. We as an organization managed to pay for the school fees of this particular pupil to form one; we also bought blankets for the families which can be supported by pictures taken on this day. Therefore by working together as an organization we managed to help this misrable family; up to now we are educating some orphans from my community
