Helping The Needs

Amazing thing never got out of the world,but it was such an amazing situation when the youths of wabulego village in Jaji felt sorry for the needy in their area.It was really yearning for the needy people to get the basic needs of their families but still it came to be challenging to the youths who wanted to help the needy like the old people by providing them with some utensils and jerry cans and other material for we in their homes.To worse the matters these was also no any good water source around.It still remembered a challenged to the youths to collect water from the near by village which is about 3km yet they had no reasonable tisn/Jerry cans.However they still never ignored them they helped them to clean and slash their compounds.
