Fund Raising

I can still remember very well what happed the last two weeks in our village.Some people came in our village and it was 7 ocklock in the morning.Suddenly we were called at a place so that those people can talk to us.Those people told us that they want to start fundraising in our village.They wrote down all the names of the orphans. i was one of them because my father died and my mother died and i was written among other names of other children,we were given some money, food, clothes and our homes were made and were repared, they built for us all parmanent houses and some boholes were dug to help us have water every time and again people of the village thanked them for what they did.
