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

God Never Forgets His People

Two years ago,I remember of a family that lived in the slums of kibera The family was poor that it couldn't even provide food for the family all they depended on was water with salt and there they went on sleeping waiting for the other day hopping God will gide them. As the days moved on a group of young men and women formed an organisation that was to help and provide all the needs that a basic person needs.As the group noticed and heard about that family they planned and organised all they needed to provide the needs of the family. Finally God had answered the prayers of the people when they walk up and there they were hearing a knock and the group entered and all the needs the of the family was given to them.The group payed school fees for the children and rented a big house that catered for the whole family The clothing the family needed was provided while the food and eletrcity was introduced in the poor living families.It was only when the family started asking each other where they could move all the money from all the things they were provided,But the group didn't mind and payed all the things and even opened a bank for the family.
