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

Misdirected Favour

An old woman who has been running an orphanage in kakamega for the past ten years has been overtaken owing to her inability to think well by side beneficiaries who come up to disguise themselves as supportive to her programme. A woman brought her daughter to the orphanages and said she offered to work as a volunteer, freely soon after, donors from the US came with a heart to support the orphanage financially but in unclear circumstances ended up not directing their support to the orphans who are desperate and needy, but took this volunteer and gave all their attention to this well sufficient girl. Amazingly, this girl took all the benefits , was sponsored to go America and later her sister also followed suit as the sponsorship was rolled over to this cunning family
