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

Droughts

Most African countries experiences drough throughout with little rainfall. In Kenya, most of the nothern parts receive very little rainfall. The residents residing on those areas live under harsh environmental conditions. They live like refugees in their own country. The rainfall is unreliable, it cannot support any crop. Their children are born and grow to adults without realising there is something called education. They suffer insecurity problems from their enemies who come from the neighbouring countries. The enemies steal their camels, raid their livestock and those who resist are shot. They depend on relief food from the government and donations from developed countries that are willing to help. Most of them explain that they don't believe that they chose a president to rule them.
