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

Extending Mercy & Love To The Needy

Iam a boy aged 17 and I stay in Kakamega Central district. In the last 6 months there has been an attempt by the Red cross Society to help support the community especially in matters of safety. The Red Cross has helped save situations where there was war. In the last six months some people burned down a house of a poor widow in Kakamega Central district in Shinyalu. The Red Cross came in handy to help her with blankets and other useful needs before helping her to build a house.
