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

Help The Needy

Many organizations have come up in the name of sponsors. They claim to be helping orphans and other needy children to complete their education. But that isn't it the case as they help for some time and all over sudden disappear.It was the same case with my neighbor who had such a sponsor at first and later on when the time of need came the organization was no where. This organization was his only hope. As a result he ended up looking for a job instead of completing his studies.But not all are like that, there are others that have helped a lot. Still more are needed in order for more children to complete their studies and achieve their dreams.
