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

Don't Let Any Child Die Of Hunger

Many children in Kenya are faced with malnutrition and death from starvation. Visit some of the arid and semi arid areas and you will see crying children who have nothing to eat; sometimes for days. Lack of food is one of the main problems facing Kenyans at the moment. The government and concerned citizens should concentrate their efforts in helping starving families. Do not let a single Kenyan child die of hunger. Leaders should stop campaigning for the 2012 elections and instead use their energy and money to provide food. If Kenyans if Kenyans continue to die from starvation there will be fewer voters anyway. I urge all those who can donate some food for hungry Kenyans. If you have an extra packet of maize flour please take it to the Kenya Red Cross Society offices and they will take it to a starving family. Helping is so simple and good.
