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

We Are Equally The Same

I was one day going to visit my friend in Umoja. There was a beggar at the road side sicking for help. I dropped twelve shillings at the bowl and proceed with my journey and finally reached at my friends home. We chart and enjoyed ourselves. It was now getting late, I decided to go back home. On my way I saw the beggar who was at the roadside handing over fifty shillings to the person who was selling maize. I thought that beggar was buying a roast maize but I was wrong. The beggar was paying the man for small portion where he was begging money. I approach the man and asked him to give back the money we argue over and over until he gave back the money. The next day the beggar thanked me and I was happy to see the smile on his face. We should treat everybody the same since we are all created by God.
