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

Luck Of Food

There is a time when we had luck of food in our community whereby even it made many to develop some diseases and even some were almost to die, so it happened to recieve some visitors who came in our communityas an organization and by that time we had widows, widowers and even needy children that were almost to die because of lack of food. We had also orphans that their parents had died of HIV/AIDS and so they were left helpless . Thanks God when these people found that sad situation, they took an action of helping. The group was Red cross, They bought 25 bundles of flour or bags whereby we gave to the needy and orphans who were helpless. Immediately we recieve another groupfrom baptist church organisation whp gave out free treatment to those who had developed some effections like malaria, deworming, skin rushes, how to treat water, how to care hygiene (environmental care) etc. Though some had already died but because of an organization many came to life. So as from that time i will never forget and i will do counselling and guiding to many. Those who had not recieve christ as their personal savour, they are now saved. They are able to work and get their daily food
