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

Drug Abuse And Alcohol Change

My name is Kevin Muliro.Some years back i got involved in a bad company and that group exposed to bad vices.They introduced me to drugs and alcohol.My hole life went crushing because i depended entirely on drugs and alcohol.For aa time,i thought i could never leave this life because i was addicted to this.However a year ago a certain NGO came to our area and started rehabilitating addicts of drugs and alcohol such as me.The whole practise has been going on well since from then we usually attend classes on weekends and we really learn alot.I can say,I and my several peers have changed our lives and we see some hope in future.
