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

The Attack

ON THE FATEFUL NIGHT we took supper that was very well cooked by my mother. She cooked one of the most delicious meals of all. They were well eaten. We stayed on the North of town which means on the Kalenjins soil. We went to bed early. The dogs barked louder than usual. We woke up in protest for a good night sleep. We could not help it but we had to assist the security outside. On marching out, my brother first saw men walking towards the house with bows on hand and arrows ready. We threw ourselves back to the house. They were closing on our house with languages of difference - someone has to escape on this.
