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

Goodbye Starvation

Currently in my village and the whole country the rate of inflation has been very high. The sky rocketing price of goods and service has been very expensive for the people ofmy community. Basic need like food and medicine and paraffine which is used as a source of fuel is totally unffordalble sicne the people have very low incomes. The ministry of Agriculture lauched a project called ''Njaa Mafuriko Kanya''. Th project has supplied free food in terms of grains, wheat, and vegetable to the community. it has also built medical health centers in Lukusi and Ivakale town centers. The project has also built green house to nature vegetable for the community. The people are now healthy since purchase of food is no longer difficult for them.
