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

The Corrupt Offices

After lifestraw gave out pumps to clean the water in our village to be distributed among the villagers there were those officers that liked money and did not want to get the villagers some pumps freely. As days went by they started selling the pumps at 150/= shillings per pump. Since the villagers desperately needed the pumps to clean the water they did not have anything else to do than give out the cash for the pumps. the officers really benefited from the money they got from selling the pumps.
