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

Hwelp All Victims Of War And Internal Violence

Red cross is an organisation that exist to help victims of war and internal violence. Henry Dunant intends to disciss business with the fellows. Whether the emperor will receive him. He find himself in the middle of the battle field. All around him are bodies of wounded soldiers. Some are diying and others are already dead. He also notices the army medical corps are overwhelmed by the war and are too disorganised tobe able to cope with the number of casualties. Turning the church in a small vilage into a makeshift hospital, he calls for extra help. The village women come to his aid and work tirelessly as nurse, refusing to be discouraged or repelled by the horrendous situation they are faced with. There is a mission to save life, comfort the dying and treat the wounded. We appreciate the organisation to do more.
