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

Environment Conservation

Human activities has been causing a great problem in our country due to pollution to the environment. Many a time there is a lot of disease outbreak due to pollution to the environment caused by the activities of man. Big industries such as sugar factories emitts toxic gases which later pollute our environment causing very many problems such as poor visibility which may later result to accidents. It's also unfortunate that these activities also cause deplotion to ezone layer resulting in hot sun rays to human beings.This might cause diseases such as cancer it skin cancer. It's therefore good and a challenge to the government to conserve our environment through encouraging planting trees and put in place strict measures to those who might be found polluting the environment.
