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

Cancer

Cancer is one of the serious disease affecting most of the people in our country. It's a disease that claims most of the lives in the country. Unfortunately the victims can only be treated in one hospital ie Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). According to increase number of the people sufferig from cancer, the government has been facing a great challenge to curb this situation. This is impossible because in the hole country we have only one machine which can treat cancer. In a day, only 20 percent of those who are suffering from cancer can be treated as compared to the high population.
