The Story To Remember

In the past years people of the same clan used to come together and enjoy. My mum was a member of Mateti group which envolved activities taking part in the family. Last year my mum as the chair lady of Mateti group was caught up in a problem. My grandfather was sick and needed to be contributed for some money to be taken to hospital.He was suffering from high blood pressure and other complicated diseases. The group only managed to make 120,000 shillings, the amount contributed was 30,000 less which was being needed at AGA KHAN hospital. My mum thought behind her noise and went to the bank to take a loan and my grandfather was released and now he is fine. Making this group to be successful.
