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

Mzee Tembo

Our house had been destroyed fire and that night we never knew where to go and rest. We tried looking for a house during the day but all was in vain. The thought of sleeping outside in the cold was too dangerous not for our lives but also healthwise especially for my two months child. As we sat contemplating what to do, Mzee Tembo came and tool us to his place and gave us a house in the servants quarter to stay until we found a suitable place that was covenient for us. We really appreciated him and thanked God for him.
