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

Thanks Aunty

Without cloths it is impossible for one to go out or do anything because the clothes cover us. However there are some people like me who had clothes which were really torn and were full of patches of different colours so whether you wore them or not they brought shame on you. Some of my clothes had long time become too short for me because I had grown tall. However many thanks to aunt Godliver Mukhongo who came to visit my grandparents and me here at Mundika and when she saw the kind of clothes I was wearing, she asked me to bath and took me to Busia Shopping Complex where she bought for me lots and lots of clothes almost a whole suitcase. I was so happy and thanked her for her sincere and kind heart.
