This person usually fed from his sweat. burnt charcoal in order to meet family needs but what made amazed of myself. he climbed of the tree. to prun it by luck. The tree got broken on the top and he fell down. The person was picked up during evening hours when some small children were taking their herds home when they found him lieing down. As people were informed of the person found in a bad condition, they went faster to rescue the person's life. Although he was rescued he didn't return to the family became the most poor of all in the community. children stayed at home. They had nobody to feed them or even pay for school fees. However, people of the community provided them with food and clothes but they are not comfortable. Their needs are not fulfilled as at the beginning.
