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

Outbreak Of Disease

Once a group came up with an area affected with rubbish and diseases.Before the incident,more and more villagers die of cholera,typhoid and many others.These diseases spread out there root very fast.This brought in other calamities like found scarcity and water.This thing were all not safe for using them.As the days passed by,more people were taken to the hospital for further treatment but no space was left even for someone to lie down.Then later on the ministry knew this and started organizing on what step to take. It them time for a solution to be found.No one either understood the start point on this earlier.Once a solution was found,medicine and all other equipments were to be searched.It took sometime,after all the preparation was made the action of treating and preventing set off. Something to my shock,more people were treated and regained their consciousness.To my surprise the ministry gave out some mosquito nets.
