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

Savung Of People's Lives

IRCU is an organisation formed by the government to help people with HIV both in villages and in towns. It helps through giving them guidance and counselling as it helped a lady in deep villages. This lady said that she was about to kill herself because she is a HIV positive, she was far deep in the village alone. In her house, she said her relatives ran away after knowing that she was positive. IRCU found her there in deep thoughts of killing herself and advised her not to do it so. This lady said that this organisation helped her so much but she said that there is still a need for this organisation to help also other people in the same village because she said that many people are there in villages who lost hope for their lives
