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


In the community of turkana ther is famine there is nothing to be seen like food on water. People are just complaining but there is no change at all. It started from 2001 up to now. Its still continueing. They tried to do anything for them to get food but they can't they are starving into hunger. They need a solution as earlier as now before it continue in that community is calm there are no animals no birds to be seen. The people in that community are weak and they can't dig or do anything because of the famine. They don't have strong bones. They just seat and relax. Because if they do alot of work or any work they may die in a twinkle of a minute. Little children and innocent people are just dying because of faminine. I feel soor y for this community. And I am praying for them to have a solution.
