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

Drilling Of Boreholes

Due to the climatic change in the country. This has led to the regions experiencing climatic conditions that they were not used to. This is due to the global warming. It has left the country into disasters whereby people are starving due to the poor food crop and crop failure thus leading to poor harvest and crop yield this has affected the countries food basket. Due to this UN HABITAT launched a program to help drill boreholes in the arid an semi arid regions in the country, this was evident in turkana, this has led to the communities engaging in irrigation in the regions in order to boost the food basket in the country. This has led to the reduced level of starvation in the country.
