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

Joke

A woman wanted to reach her husband on his phone but discovered that she was out of credit. She instructed her son juniors, to use his own phone to pass across an urgent message to daddy who is at the site. After junior had called, he got back to mummy to inform her that it was a lady that picked up daddy's phone the three times he tried reaching dad on the phone (woman!!) She waited impatiently for her husband to return from the site. Immediately she saw him, she gave him a very hot slap. Whilst the man was trying to ask why? she repeated the slap. People from the neighbourhood rushed around to know the cause of this. The man asked junior to say what the lady said to him when junior called. "Mteja wa nambari uliopiga hapatikani kwa sasa" meaning "the mobile subscriber can not be reached for now. Please try again later" and the people were amused and nobody could say anything.
