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


Sarah and Susan were working for an organisation as teachers, there salary were sent from abroad but through there manager. It was so sad that the manager was not truthful to the workers,when the sponsors sent the money, he either deducted half of the payment. One day he decided to invest some business and to make the matter worse he used the workers payment to invest his business. The workers were patient but after 4 months they could not be patient any more. They went to look for their manager but he kept playing games with them. They decided to file charges against their manager because they had suffered enough and they also had families to take of but to everybody's dismay the case was thrown away in the trash as if nobody cared corruption definately took the way to justice.
