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

Hope Came At The Very Right Time(of Need)

My name is Margaret Mweretsi. I am the mother of Josephine Imesi and I must honestly confess that God has been very kind enough in our time of trouble to remember us through CHES in assisting her to acquire education to form 4 last year. The marks of 2003 of the departure of my children's father and the attack on Josephine with her blindness really took us bottom bound. We were gathered back when by the act of kindness, this organization supported the treatment of the girl and also gave her a chance to continue with her education up to Form 4. She may have been abandoned after Form 4, but the contribution of CHES into her life leaves a formidable ground upon which her life rests. God whom we pray, and also who brought in CHES might touch someone on a Global level to help her into college which is the crucial need at hand.
