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

Last Chance In Life

LAST CHANGE IN LIFE When I was seated next to the little girl she looked happy and jovial untill when her guardian narrated to why she is accomodating her yet they are not related. A story began on a high voice asking questions that seemed rhetorical but my voice fdiminished as tears rolled down her guardians cheeks. Pain filled my heart but I held my tears reason being I wanted the story. She was defilled by a relative who was a husband to her sister and she is positive as we speak and at the age of ten. life ruined at avery early age but the girl look happy as she has another chance in life my worry is for how long will these animosity act stop in our community? It is all about us to intervene.
