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

Walking

When I got involved in a fatal road accident along the Nakurua road accident along the Nakuru Kisumu highway.It was very obvious that I wont be able to walk.The doctors report was that I would be paralysed for life. The report shocked and frustrated me and the hope of ever being on my two feet walking died in January this year, my fiance Sarah came back from the studies abroad and immediately came to see me. She started to tell me that it was possible to walk again.I remember she would pray for me and then help me stand up to walk.At first it was started to a strangely gain some strength and after two months I was able to stand up and today I can proudly confess that i can walk.
