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

Lunaya Association

In 5 years ago before the elections in 2007 we had a an organization in Shinyalu contituency called 'LUNAYA'. I was there since I was born in 1993 at Lugala village. It used to organize some sports during december holidays on boxing day 26th at Lugala primary field. It use to unit people of Kugala community as well as other people from Shinyalu. People like Mr. George Murila was responsible for it. In the year 2006 'LUNAYA' went on to support puppils who passed K.C.P.E to join secondary school by paying for their first term fee in a high school. In the same year the organization gave a medical offer by providing doctors from varies hospitals including Kanyatta national hospital. They treated people free at Shibuye sub-location, Lugala and Ileho. It even offer to give wheelchair to people who could not walk and treated varies diseases and gave appropriate medicines to the victims. Well really thinks them for also contributing in building our Friends church at Lugala.
