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

Irresponsible Parent

It was on 15th December 2005 when my neighbor delivered a child. After two weeks i saw the woman leaving the child, I thought she was going to see her friend. After a few hours I saw the woman coming back without a child. I smelt a rat and went to her and I asked her, ''where is your child,'' she told me that she had left her at her friends house. I did not mind because i thought it was the truth- After two days I started suspecting the woman gone to her and told her that I hadn't heard her child cry for two days. The woman told me that her she is her friend house. I went to her friends house and I did not find the baby. I ran to the police station and reported.I was assisted and the woman was arrested. Thanks to the street boys who had helped the baby and taken him to the Mama Ngina children's home I thanked God for saving the baby. Thanks to Mama Ngina who help children who are left by parents.
