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

Hiv/aids Erands

Campaings aganist HIV/AIDS is all over the world. Its one kind of a disaster that not one will laugh towards or for this kind of campaign swips too the country kenya the downer part of Nyanza. In my society it has too been a menance. People contract this and some tend to keep to themselve and believe on social thinking than on mental well being. They come out when it is already a problem with no way out.It so happened that HIV is controllable at the beginning but its defiante on later development. So it folds to us that one of the NGO came to our community to sensitize us on this. Being that they used locals for this programme, we realize our society is not safe at all. three quarter is infeeted and all are affected. Others were keeping still, on the campaign more individual got to know there status and stoled getting assistance. This was a great club that opened more ways of help for us. people are now comfortable with there status and there is that encouragement and support all over the community.All are accepted.
