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

Sewerage System In Kondele - Kisumu

Sewerage system helps to get rid of sewer in public places. This is not the case in Kondele in Kisumu city. There are no sewerage systems. the sewer just flows openly along the streets and even on trenches in front of people's homes. The trenches are dug to enhance the flow of water and sewerage materials. Unfortunately, the trenches are not even cemented and get to expand each passing day. Other people use the trenches as urinal pits hence making them to have a really bad smell. No one shows concern over the trenches and most of them have been blocked and this really poses a danger to the lives of many residents especially to the children who even play in the trenches and this may lead to diseases among the people in this community.
