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

The Good Samaritans

The vehicle knocked me down on the road and vanished in a thin air living me helpless and blood profusely.My consience was going and my memory going as each second went.I never knew what was happening and just then everything went black. As i walk up,i found myself in the hospital,on a bed and as i looked around,i saw a man sitted by my side and thanking God for my recovery.He was there with a beautiful woman whom i supposed to be the wife.They told me how they had found me on the road and how they had brought me at the hospital. They asked the phone numbers of my parents and they called them to the hospital.After my parents came they introduced themselves to them as Mr and Mrs Wanyama and left.
