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

Help From Polycom Development

This happened on March 14th 2011 when there came visitors who tried the people who had no hope at all. The orphans at Magoso Primary School were at least helped by very good people with special heart to love and to help other people and rescued them from the jaws of poverty. The orphaned children felt like they were close to their fathers and mothers because of the honesty they were given by the Polycom Development. The orphans were given books and they were as happy as kings. They were told to be free and write down their problem and after that they put them into the small help and they could be helped. Everyone was happy and we gave all the thanks and regards to the Polycom Project.
