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

Thrown Out.

His father came home drank. He told his children to go and wash for him clothes together with the blanket. This was just my closest friend. He did as he was told. When they finished washed. He told them to take the blanket the way it was. He forced him to go and sleep when the blanket was still cold. This guy was obedient but that time around he could not tolerate. He ran faster and went to Children's right office. He reported that matter and he got helped. They took that child to Children's home. One month later, the organisation told him to go back. The father had missed him for a long time. He welcomed him as well and asked for forgiveness.
