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

Drought And Famine

In my villlage, once a time was struck with drought and famine. Everything was faced with problems. Plants weathered of. The land looked ugly, with dust everywhere. Animals on the other hand were at hunger. Most of animals died. Also food was not available. This was led to most of people striving hunger. Everything at mase. Most activity stagnated because there was no food for people and as a result people were weak and lacked energy to carry out the activities. Most people died. There was crisis about this issue. The government came in and saved the situation. It provided relief food for people. We were thankful to the government. Until these time they are still donating as their aid of food.
