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


It was one of the hottest Mondays. The sun was sinking down the hills, spreading its yellow pats of rays. All in a sudden I realized in my mind that it was getting dart and late. Suddenly I was shocked by a crush from the nearby highway. I stood still. I tried to move by my heart started bumping very fast. But after some minutes shouting started from the nearby villages made me gain courage and ran as fast as I could. "Help" "Help" I could hear more ones as I drew nearer. I ran more fast to sew what had happened. After a while I saw something like a vehicle i a bush. I tried to rub my eyes so as to see clear. When I found it was a car I never believed my eyes and dashed. Very quickly I found a boy who was knocked down I felt pitty for him and quickly lifted him up and hold him on my bicycle and took him to the nearby dispensary he was given first aid and taken to the nearby hospital.
