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

Power In African Country

Its not easy for a community to corp up with war like environments which i personaly witnezzed in the country during the post election violence. Thanks to the international patners in mission who gave a helping hand to the many of the people who were left homeless by providing them with soem cash to acquire houses else where away from kibera slums. many of the people who were kicked out of their livng rooms in kibera spent atleast one week in the cold befoer the PM come for their resque,power transmission in African country means blood,death and loss of property in the resent study. I wonder what can be doen in a land where goods have been destroyed people have been killed and wounded the population has fled to escape the danger.Today comes of million of shillings are spend on politicalarena in order to gain power ten times more than the total spent on humanitarian and other aid.
