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

Need For Clean Water

We were visited that day by an organisation that worked with food & water security. That morning our home was clean before 10:00 AM. The guests had arrived. They introduced themselves and we did likewise. My parent was a small can that was used to purity water for domestic use and consumption. They explain how to use the can (life-straw), and also explained the need to drink clean water. After the session the guest left after taking details of their clients. The process was conducted in the whole location.
