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


my son always experienced abnormal pains in his abdominal cavityand this could even make him vomit,shout and do crazy things any pregnant woman who was able to deliver would do. At times this pain would last for one hour ,two hours and for all this time he experienced ,it lasted fifteen hours and for all this hours i watched my son wriggle in pain and struggle so much.Tears clouded my eyes and i wished it were possible for me to experience the pains on his behalf.The kidneys and the stomach and the heart were all paining her simultaneously and it was absolutely terrible. One day i met an agent of Green World Health company called Mitchell.this agent screened my son and started to treat him.he gave him drugs that would help nourish my son's kidney,stomach ,heart and blood.With time my son started to get well and today the pains are no more and he's completely healed.Thanks to the Green health company's medication that brought the difference.
