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

Robbery At Night

One very fine morning as always i woke up only to find out that our immediate neighbour was beaten and his house broken into at night and did what a normal person could not do. The robbers took away every property of our neighbour beat him up almost to death and worse of all they went a head and reap his wife in his absence and she was left on the floor helplessly bleeding and unconsious. I quickly raised an alarm and every one who was near came and the whole family infected were taken to the hospital as the police did their investigation. I thank the hospital for their moral support of solving life despite of luck of money that we experienced by then the insident occured.
