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

Nhif

When my girlfriend realised that she was pregnant in February, she was shocked. She cried as she shared with me about the same and infact she realised when she was three months. I automatically knew that I had no money to take care of her or even take her to hospital when the nine months were over. As I shared this with my friend Brosilla, he gave me a good idea and so I took my girlfriend to NHIF offices and opened an account for her and paid one year in advance. When July came she was in pains and so I took her to the hospital and by bad luck she had to undergo an operation. The operation was successful and I am happy that the NHIF card did the paying for me.
