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

Child Labour

In our village there are two children who are orphans. When their parents died their parents died their aunt took them and promised to educate them.Instead of standing by her words she started mistreating them, sending them to the market, making them iron upto late in the night and wash her clothes. Even when they were sick they never took care of them . One day a friend who worked with their father saw them selling water and bread to passers by.He took them to his home and told him to seek his help when in need when he handled the case. When the aunt realised it she sweet talked them so that they may not reveal the truth to the court. By good lack the man had accompanied the children with the police. This made the lady to be arrested and jailed as the man took care of the children and educated them.Today they are free in the man's home unlike at their aunts place.
