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

Shortage Of Food

There was a time when most people in my area were complaining about their children being affected physically and mentally.An organisation from American people decided to help them by giving medical attention and providing foods.Most of the children suffered from kwashiokor because of eating one type of food for a long time which was not balance diet. The organisation took those who were mentally affected and went to treat and educate them.Those who were physical affected were taken care of by that organisation but were taken to a different place.Their parents were very happy because the area was going to be the poorer one in the district.They were also happy because their children were treated at the early age.This reminded me of a proverb which my collegues usually use in class 'astich in time saves nine'. The organisation realy did something to be remembered by many people.
