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

Code Of Behaviour

Some individuals in our communities generate better standards of living due to their code of conducts in their communities. There was a man known as Maxwell Smith trying to fight out the same problem in his society. He passed through all means of getting ways of making his people to live a better and comfortable life. So one day he decided to create a small generating income of buying and selling fruits. He was to go out of his community to seek for the fruits. He continued for a period of two years, on the process of doing his small business he met with a man from America and explained to that man al the intention he had towards his community. In the human heart that man decided to carry himself that burden of helping that man (Maxwell Smith) finally the community got assisted.
