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

The Year Of Completion

I was doing my last semester in the university between January and April this year but upto 15th of February i had not yet paid even a single ant in my school all yet the fee payment deadline was on the 17th of February. I could not imagine failing to register for the semester bacause that meant that i finishing my forth year next year in April. I really called people to support me and one thing came to me.I went to the parliament buildings and spoke to my area MP Honourable Chris Okemo who straight away went with me to the bank and paid the entire fees needed that semester. I was very delighted and thanked God for the miracle.
