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

An Asian's Innovation

Long ago an Asian visited our district when our forefathers used to live in bushes. To the Asian is seemed to be hard to live in such like an environment. The forefathers used to grow a thick layer of hair everywhere on the bodies. It was very unhealthy for them to live without jackets during cold nights because it could cause some sickness for them. The Asian decided to go back to Asia and bring a sowing machine to make clothes for them. It was now somehow assistable to them because they were not easily to prevent our forefathers from suffering from malaria. Upto now many of us have benefited with introduction of clothes and mosquito nets.
