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

Destroy Thieves

We could not sleep that day. Let me explain what happened to us that night. Before 9:00 o'clock, some people started walking outside when we heard of them as they continued jumping outside. We became afraid that we couldn't continue reading our story books. They started making for us noise. Are we supposed to make noise that [people can come and help us? One of them came in and take our light off and all of them come and beat us so that they can take away things and go. Some minutes, I heard shoes coming to me that I heard people coming with their spears. My mother was beating with the thieves and she could not walk even very well and we decide that we can take her hospital that doctors can help us.
