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

Tom's mother died on the month February this year something that caused a lot of grieve, confusion and discouragement to him and his brothers. The death was a shock to them as they had no money to facilitate the burial and to them life had simply came to an end unless god did a miracle. Good enough the Catholic church of Busia contributed a substantiall amount of money that helped them effectively give their mother a decent burial and remain with some cash for future use. Thanks to the Busia Catholic Community for their moral support.


  • The organization most involved in what happened: Busia Catholic Community
