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

Remembering The Street Children

Apostle James Mabwa of Victory church in Kakamega organized a feeding programme towards the end of last year 2010 on Dec 18. The aim of this was to remember the needy, disadvantaged and neglected to have a moment to rejoice. He arranged for them to have the good news preached to them and he intends to model them having been himself a former street boy that lived for long on the same Kakamega streets. The change of a altitude on the street children gives them a chance to feel as same as other children.
