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

Child Abuse

All that glitter is not gold. A result to this is that in a certain day as i was just passing by th road met a certain girl who was crying in hard pains. I tried to consult her to tell me what had happened to her, in response she could tell me that she didnt have all her paernts i.e she was an orphan and she lived with her aunt and that aunt was overworking her even her school uniform was in tatters and she went to school in intrval, no food to eat therefore she decided to run away and look for different dwelling place despite of whom she was going to live with. Indeed i could not capably support her but i adviced her to go to the orphanage home and get settled there. In response she moved to that particular place and enjoyed in all herlife where she was to study without any interferance. Eventually she succeeded in life and became the university material from her poor background. All in all as she meets me she recalls of the day and since that time, she knows me as a friend in need
