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

A Double Tragedy

I can still remember the case from the top.That day i was from the night club at night when i heard a voice shouting from a bush after covering some distance.I rashly ran towards the bush only to find a thateen-year-old girl laying their helplessly after being raped by a fome four gentlemen when she was on her way home. I hurriedly called for some passers-by to assist me in carring the young girl to the hospital.Futher treatments were taken only to discover that the girl was affected with HIV virus causing AIDS and was also pregnant. Is this fair to do for others really?I could not believe how the life of the girl was.All the causes were the burdens of her step mother who sent her to the shop at night.The girl is an orphan who was left on the hand of her step mother who is now treating her unfaily.Can you imagine that ?how could she be helped since her parents are not there and the step mother is also cruel.This ones are all but burdens of the world.Surely it is a double tragedy.
