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

Government Involvment In Mathare.

It is a pity that the government is not really conserned with the situation at mathare so much. The government through the ministry of Local government should be involved in Mathare by managing all the sewers, public toilets and dumpsites. Unfortunately this is not happening. Dumpsites in mathare are neither emptied nor collected together. It is all left and scattered almost every where.The public toilets have been turn to personal businesses for individuals. Through the ministries of public and medical services, the gorvernment should ensure that public hospitals and clinics are built all over Mathare. It is a pity that there are no public hospitals neither are there clinics. The goverment should take an initiative to built hospitals to help reduce the medication cost.
