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

Helping Flood Victims

For many in Budalangi loosing their properties to the raging waters has been like a norm during rainy seasons. Lucky enough they are always helped particularly by the Kenya Red Cross which provides them with blankets, nets, food rations untill the situation subsides. Also, some always benefit from the organisations evacuation and response team and have thus managed to escape death thanks to the Redcross team. Budalangi resident therefore have a great responsibility and reason for gratitude towards the Kenya red cross organization for their confirmed support year in year out to ensure minimum losses and suffering in floods.
