Human Ignorant

There was a village one man came up with an idea cleaning the environment not only cleaning the environment but also keeping of chickens(poultry).The man did not keep it dark but he told me the clan member .Many people agreed with the situation but no one was able to lend a hand in correcting rabbish Some people found that their children were becoming sick because of the neligence of parents not giving children good hygiene.The organisation no body turned up they lost the end.Many people threw the dust particles in the river which have led to spread of malaria and the death of acquatick to our animals Some people threw polythene bag which have lead to the brockage of soil to get air in order to plants to germinate of soil to get air in order to plants to germinate these lead to lackage of food.this is behome up
