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

The Village Best Experience.

Our area popularily known as Lubango had really been uncaring village.People just dwelled on their on issues as they follow the adage that 'mind your own business. As time past needy people kept adding in the society orphans,widows,street children and IDP's.This is when the village came together and came up with a welfare called ''help you neighbour umbrella group(HYNUG).This organisation tried to donate food,clothing and also shelter. The villagers were now very glad about the project.It even got more assistance from improved organisations e.g United Nations,USAID and life was very nice and enjoyable as God blessed us abundantly.
