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

Ending Hunger

Hunger has been one of the greatest disaster in Kenya. The fact that some parts of the country are not productive at all, makes it very difficult for the residents of those areas to find food especially during drought seasons. Kenya have been h it by hunger for several times and people have even lost their lives by lacking food for prolonged periods. Attempts by the government to save enough food in the national granaries have failed because there is too much demand for the food,even much more than the food available for consumption. The Kenya Red cross has also involved itself in the distribution of food to the affected persons but people still go hungry for several days and end up taking wild fruits and leaves from the bushes. There is so much need for other organization to come in and help end the hunger crisis.
