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

Road Safety

The day was calm and the street was full of people, Suddenly, there was a loud bang on the road opposite Yako supermarket. Something must be wrong there. All the races of young and old were leading to the scene of accident. A small boy of about 15 yrs old was lying breathlessly on the road, he had been knocked over by an incoming lorry when he was on a motor-cycle. Within no time, a group of 7 people dressed in red clothes arrived and picked up the boy. They were from the road safety measure programme (R.S.M.P). The boy was taken to hospital. The next thing that was done, was tarmacking. No wonder, few accidents are on the road to joyland.
