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

Where There Is A Will There Is A Way

There is a organization that came to our community to help children who are orphans and women who can't help themselves. They came to the community and immediatly build a school which helped many orphans. Pupils were going to school free without any payment..They were being provided with food, shelter and clothing. In the community there were no toilets no homes and tanks for proper hygiene. The community was full of dirt and any child contracted diseses. There were no hospitals. When they cam they build hospitals, latrines and homes for the homeless. Now in the community many people have homes and there are no diseases. They brought large tanks everywhere for proper storage of water. They have helped many people in the society.
