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

Relief Foods And Clothing For The Disabled.

street children, orphans and widows in Kakamega county had a sigh of relief in 2010 as they received food donations and clothing from the victory gospel church. the church was engulfed by a carnival mood as the street children surrendered their sniffing gum and dirty cloths in exchange for food and new clothings. Orphans and widows also had something to write home about as they received better cooked food, maize to carry for their families and clothes. The exercise that was initiated by Apostle James Mabwa narrowed the gap that existed between the street children, orphans and widows and the able ones as they no longer consider themselves marginalized.
