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

Effects Of Alcohol

Their was the habits of the people drinking Alcohal caming home during night time if was just caming night time when silent could not bother anybody in this community,But the problem was that;they came same times abusing their neighbours,talking of shameful words even you can imagine how a foolish drunked man/woma talks or does after drinking.The whole comunity had nathing to do to this bad habit but only to warn them.But the warning was all in vain so the matter became wise. It reaches a point now we started experiencing many wifes/womens divorcing to their husband but the only reason was Alcohol which was like water that they can't do without.I meet with a goal ''mama'' mather on they way at 2:00 midnight when I was talking my father to hosp[ital,I felt annoyed after explanation that he was chased away by a drunked man who boxes her and burned her clothes only that she gave him Ugali with Sukuma wiki she went on telling me that her husband could not even leave a single shilling to buy food for his children rather,he could use his money in club and came back without anything a claims to have ugali with meat but not green leafs. The woman sat a target and united together to teach their hasbands a lesson. They agreed to close the door after 8:00pm and never to open when he cames drunk they were supported by the community that anybody who will be found on the way before 8:30pm will be forced to be stoned to death because their was robbers around the community. We had an example of one husband who was found outside his compound after they were refused to open the door and he was beaten proper.He sarves as an example which made a big change in the community.
