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

Control Of Hiv/aids

Aids had been declared a national disaster in Kenya. This is because its cure is yet to be discovered. There have been public forums, campaigns through the media and even open crusades that caution people on the dangers of accuiring the deadly disease. The campaigns are carried out by the different organization and even the government with an aim of giving the recipient a message that will enable him/her to understand how and how not the disease can be accuired. Though there are proposed preventive measures, there are still a lot of victims of the disease simply because a cure has not been found. There is need for more campaigns, public forums and advocacy to help people know the preventive measures and the side effects plus the real symptoms and dangers of the disease.
