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

Helping The Minor

As I was passing on the road going to work, I heard cries of a child at the next home they cries of pain. I went over and checked and there a met a little boy who was bleeding and told me that the father had beaten him because he refused to go to school. I reported the case to the childrens department where they went and took a look at the boy, they called his father whom they first took to the police for that was a child torture. They then took the child to hospital for treatment. The father remained in custody where he was arraigned in court and prosecuted. It remained a lesson to other parents who should always check on the punishment to give to their kids rather than beat them to bleeding state.
