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

Artificial Fertilization

My aunt had married for five years and for all years she and her husband had not yet got a baby rather a child.This was very stressful to get achild .This was stressful to them because people in the estate and family members had started to mock them of being able to get a child of their own.They even started avoiding social events like weddings parties and even funerals for the fear of what people and family members would say about them.One day my son who is a doctor at Nairobi hospital paid them a visit at their home in Runda.They shared the problem with him openly and he told them that it was possible to get a baby of their own through implantation of the husbands sperms into the wifes fallopian tube and allow fertilization to take place which later develop to ababy that will be born. What a great idea they thought lucky enough the couple the couple were wealthy so they underwent the procedure and in aperiod of 9 months there was at last joy in the family as the couple welcomed a bouncing baby boy in the family.
