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

The Fight Against Alcohol

With the enactment of the Alcohol Control Act last year, many thought that sanity will be restored in the society. But this is not a case in Kisumu where some bars, especially in Kondole, operate in 24hrs daily in the presence of the police. What warrious most is that the bar is full of boys and girls whoa re skimply dressed These children are exposed to dangers of contracting sexual related diseases like HIV. The government has now started acting upon them. But what we are saying is that, Government should just not have the laws on paper while very little is done to implement them. Let the police crack the whip on bars that defy the Mututho laws.
