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

Hope For Us

I thanked God for such organisations as AMPATH which have been of great help to members of my community in Busia. We have many people who are HIV positive including orphans and vulnerable children who previously died so fast due to lack of food and drugs but today apart from the counselling they receive every morning on proper living with HIV they also receive drugs and food something that is helping live longer and has even reduced deaths in my community due to this killer disease.
