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

Lets Be Kind To One Another

A girl who rescued my mum from death. My mum was seriously sick. When she was going out to buy food, she collapsed. Risper saw her and ran toward her. My mum wasn't breathing well. She was taken to hospital by Risper. Risper paid the bill and my mum was diagnosed high blood pressure which is now common in adult and aged. This disease is killing a lot of people compared to AIDS. We should take care of ourselves. Pressure is a high killer in the region as well as countryside. Risper never demanded her money back.
