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

Instability Is Not Disability

Nyakongo was being undertaken by his family members. Even his relatives didn't keep on his way as he was a blemish child. His lembness has brought him total suffering. He feel as if life is not on his way. Many times he think of committing suicide but a inner emotion stop him from doing that. many places he ask for help, they helped. but at homeplace thinks are different. That thing made Nyakongo to think more. In a lucky star there was an organisation which fought against putting the blemish people aside especially children. Nyakongo benefited from the organisation as he was not anymore. As the organisation taught the villagers how the blemish child and non- blemish are equal. The villagers were taught how they can benefit from blemish peoples in general
