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

Red Cross A Life Safer

Red Cross is an organisation that I can talk about in my story because I have seen in many cases assisting different problems when they encounter a problem like an accident. For example in our area, students feel an accident while they were on a truck back home. They got injured and some died. But the Red Cross Society came in and dressed the wounds of the survivors as well as taking them to the hospital. What a great work they do in different communities, said Bosco.
