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

Flood Disaster

Floods are great disaster just like others that his people up people. Though some areas of kenya are dry throughout the year other areas get completely showed in water during some time in the year. Examples are many Budalangi being one of them. When the place was last hit by floods ,the case was so serious and several people lost their property,some even lost their lives and even homes were swept away. Attempts by the kenya Red cross to save peoples' properties were friutless and did not bear any result because the floods were too much. They hereby decided to give out tents,blankets and food to the affected people and government promised to build huge walls that would help block the floods.
