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

Sokomoko's Alcohol

It was for a full month when the police tried to help rub off the habit of drinking all day and all night. They tried their best but all went off in vein because the drankers started hiding whenever they go to drink. They even changed the way they called there illegal drink which was 'changaa' into spirit. Worse came when the president signed the document to allow the brew. Nowadays many people in the village of SOKOMOKO have become flambergasted due to the breweries they take oftenly. It has been very rare to find a person in that village who does not drink the alcohol. We as the people in Sokomoko who understand the situation may erge the government to help the people around there control the alcoholic brew. The new constitution should bring new changes and improvement. We don't want an alcoholic nation.
