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

A Saviours Hand

The year was 2004 when villagers of Vihiga County were experiencing service agony and hardship in this great land of Kenya. Our community had been through alot over the past years but this situation had hit us to the core, children dieing every single day because of plasmodium their mosquitoes carry in their system. Everyday you could feel the pain of a mother watching her child slowly reaching the doors of death. Vihiga county had no mosquito nets and nobody could hardly afford one. But for true Jesus never forsaces his people some health officers had heard about our situation and they had brought the community some mosquito nets and they were from ministry of Education.
