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


For ten moths down on the line,there was a great drought in Kamba land which causes many circumstances.Due to this many animals died,many people died and plants dried on the land. When the ministry of this land came, he tried to solve this hard natural thing by trying to organize for his people to get some water sources through rivers and some were brought by water tanks by the vehicle and this shows that the minister loved his land and he was able to help by also walking her and there searching for some food for this people and it was good to all who never died and they really appreciate that for the good work that minister did. The later result is that people who were able to feed their animals on green grass and to get food for themselves instead of being defeated by his bad conflict in the community.
