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

The Internal Displaced People Organisation.

It was on a satarday morning as usual the internal displaced peoiple were still seated in their camps for help from anybody but nobody was interested in them.Earlier on one body but nobody was interested in them.Earlier on one of the villagers proposed a solution saying that we should try to find a way to help the internal displaced persons.That day some of the people agreed and soon an organisation was formed to help the IDP soon every day every individual produced at least one hundred shillings per day so that the organisation could get enough money to buy their needs and build them money to get them out of their in the camps.Soon they were all out of the camps ready to live without help from every one since that very moment their were no other internal displaced people in that community.
