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

Water For Life

It was on a sunny Friday morning when everybody was gathered at a local school to witness one very important event that was to change the lives of people for the rest of the better. That was commissioning of the water point that had been constructed at the market centre. Everyone was in a crazy mood that implied that things have become better. People had suffered under the spell of lack of water for a long time others at times fetching dirty water from the river but this company put a smile on people's faces and it was evident from the songs and dances from women and children. It was a sight to behold. It was a new begining which implied, clean water for life because where there is is clean water life becomes simple and healthy. From then todate people are running their activities well with happy faces that implies thing are okay.
