The World Health Organization (who)

Physical disability is one of the world killing problem. The world Health Organisation visited my country and tried to solve a deadly disease that had attack most people. This was the "Jigger removing day" About thirty percent at my county was affected by jiggers. Most families had becomed extremely poor and kids had a big problem to attend school, But I would like to thank this organization for the money it had to my people. The most benefiting of that organization of that organisation were the student and women because they are the ones who suffer alot. I feel very great for this organisation and i thank God to add them resources. I would also thank my area member of parliament for the support he offered to us. Lastly I thank my colliques for their willingness to be treated although it's a shameful disease.
