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

The Un Shameful Man.

I have afriend who is younger than i im s.2.for all this time she has had a problem with a certain man who is an askari.He normally fracks her especially when she is alone,he tells her flabbergasting words for example calling her his wife and also saying that he will get her at any times.what amuses me is that when she told her parents about it,they didn't care and the mother said that maybe he is just only joking.Am sure its not a joke because he normally asks her whether her parents are at home.I wouldn't care about it but what bothers me most is that the man is old enough to be called her dad because if i guess he is his 70's.several things happened,he has been telling her flattering things but then i advised her to tell that to our friend who is a priest.He has been trying to help her since because he also wants to give a buzz to his boss and tell him to let the little poor girl alone.he has been fighting for her because he is concerned about it.
