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


Women battling with cancer,HIV,Lupus and all big diseases.Thiniking of Lorna Irungus,the Asunta Waguras the lady living with HIV aid,and Mary Onyangoes.The members that these women are battling requires and vehemence. Everytime u see them in the media,u see over-comers,much as they are seen as the face fo the diseases they are battling,they have proved to be mightier than ailments. Internally displaced women:They live in the IDP camps,give birth in those camps and raise children from the camp.I dont know how they do it,but i know it takes extra ordinary strength to make it under such squalid conditions.
