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

Mosquito Nets

Malaria is known as a deadly disease that has affected most parts of Africa and my own area is not exceptional due to the stagnant waters and the swamps that characterize my area. Despite all this,one thing is that getting a mosquito net is so hard because one has to part with around two hundred and fifty or three hundred in order t et one .But for pregnant mothers and the mothers whose children are below the age of five ears it is not a problem.For a very long time many in my village slept without the cover of net and faced the dangers of being infected by malaria.However things got better nets were brought in and given to the residents for free something that many are grateful about
