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

The Undesided Lady.

One day not long ago when I was coming from school a meet a crowd of people who formed aring by the roadside. I was wondering what was happening and before I could reach them and find out for myself what the matter was, a police van came just behind me and stopped in the same area. I fasten my pose and strugled to see for myself what was happening, but to my shock a woman was arrested by the mob and the police had just came to her rescue in the right time before the mob dealt with her. Reason for her arrest was that she gave birth to a child and dumb in a pit latrine that was around that place. The child was rescued and taken to the hospital while the mother faced the law.
