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

It Is Good To Help

I had my neighbour and that neighbour was good hearted and she used to help children. One day my neighbour was going to the village, she found a girl crying and had a wound on her head and it was very painful for her. My neighbour asked her, 'What is the matter little girl?' What has happened to you and why are you crying? My stepmother punished me because her child fell down. My neighbour quickly took the girl to the hospital. In the hospital were nurses and doctors said, can I help u madam? My neighbour said yes I need some help this girl is bleeding please help us. The doctor said, ok please come in. After a short time the girl was very happy to be helped by the nurses and doctors. The girl also thanked the dear neighbour.
