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

Hiv-aids Testing

i was sexually abused when i was in form 4. because the person who did it to me was a close relative, my parents decided to hide my case from the police. after two yrs i became sick and bed ridden. my parents thought i have been bewitched. They introduced me to traditional medicine but nothing. one of our C.H.W in the area came to my home and decided to help me go to hospital where i was escorted by my mother. i was tested positive. my mother could not believe. when my father heard the report they felt very bad, they started pursuing the case in vain. from that time my mother became hypertensive but i am staying well and on drugs.
