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

Robbed

I had just arrived by bus at the capital city of Kenya Nairobi from my home town Busia.It was my first day at the city and i was so anxiouse to walk in the big city and just see the high raised building that i was used to seeing on the screen. As i stood there, i guy came claiming to help me carry my luggages to a place where my uncle would easily locate me and i believed me that was the last time i saw my suitcase that i had just bought a week before my departure to Nairobi. Since that day i have sworn never to seek for help in the big city.
