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

My Friend's Narrow Escape

Being a victim my cousin changed young girls live pants. All the villagers were really annoyed of this behaviour. But by good or bad luck one day he came home. With one of my school mate who was my friend. They entered into the house and after seeing her from a distance I went waited when he had gone to the shop to buy her bread and soda as usually. I didn't take even a fraction of a minute before peeping into that house and informing my friend about it. I told her about his health and he was under drugs. He had made three quarters of the girls in the village to become HIV positive and he had no mercy of stopping. We escaped with the girls to my house and after coming he found their was nobody in the house. He tried to ask the neighbour and they informed him about it. He hates me ill today but my friend is really proud of me.
