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

Malezi Kwa Wagonjwa

The sick should be taken care of in a proper and carring manner, This becomes an issue in the slums of Kibera due to the poverty level in the slums of Kibera. This lead to patients in the slums being discharged from the hospitals before the due date thus giving the relatives a major problem to take care of the sick due to lack of their know how. This has led to the loss of life of the sick and also affecting new victims if the diseases are air and water borne. Due to this aphia II launched a program to educate the people in the slum of Kibera by the use of forums and seminars in the slum on home treatment and cure of the sick in their homes. This has led to the prevention of spread of airborne diseases and reduction of loss of life of people in the slums. This has inturn improved the living standards of people since most concentrate on healthy leaving thus safe living.
