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

Helping Street Children

Two weeks ago, I was supprised to see a street kid that frequented out office buildings well dressed in new school uniform ready to go to school. When I asked himwhere he currently reside, he joyfully replied saying that thanks to one of our office staff, he can now have a roof over his head and not worry about cold nights and rainy ones to be spent. He informed me that the kind samaritan took him in and offered to pay his school fees as well as sustaining untill he is able to fend for himself. This left me thinking that everyone did the same to just a single street kid?
