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

Transformed

World vision has been an organization has helped change my life so much that all my life i feel like i owe the organization something. I remember when my parents died living me a young HIV/AIDS positive orphan with no hope or future World vision took care of me ensuring that i got the Anti Rethro virus drugs and getting me meals that have kept me going to this day. many who look at me just remain bewildred, amazed and shocked because at that time they never knew that my life will reach this far and so all i can live to do is be greateful to God for keeping me alive this far and to always thank World Vision for their continued support to me.
