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

Vandalism

Due to increased accidents at the river sio bridge the government got contractors who construct some barriers in order to prevent vehicles and bicycle riders from falling into the river. The government went as far as constructing barries on both sides of the river upto some fifty metres from the road. However some poor residence in the area seized the opportunity and vandalised the barriers stealing the metals and selling it so as to earn some money
