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

A Thief Lccii

IRCU is an organization formed to help and give support to people with HIV. It helps them by giving them basic needs of life for example soap, sugar, beans, maize flour among others. It works in villages and towns but mainly in villages as it helped people in this village. IRCU helped them through sending those things but still some benefited and others did not benefit. This was because when the things were sent they reached the place of LCII of this village. This woman said that LCII took some of the things for example maize flour and tried to hide them. Reaching the day of giving them to the affected people they are not enough hence the got them in small amount. This woman continued to say that although this organization sent for them help but they still have the problem of thiefly in their village.
