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

Community Pledge

Without daily requirements that are too-basic life has no got meaning. Food, water, and clothing is all they can ever ask for. The piping of water was established correctly from the same source to the distributors. It was the joy of the community that they shall never walk long distances for water. The M.P was a hard working individual, dedicated and commited. Money was all remitted to those concerned. Then it all changed to be a story of days, weeks, months then years. The engine pump was not available. It could not be traced after money was allocated. Tracing the money was futile. The M.P claims the money was released, committee say they never saw the cheque leave alone the money. It was followed gently to be traced that the money was lost among the two committee members. This was a major blow to the society that they could pocket the money and go unnoticed.
