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


Security is a major issue in our daily lives. Though security is one of the rights of a kenyan citizen, some can't even even imagin of it. In Borabu, there have been ferequent attacks by cattle rustlers. Most of the cattle rustlers (bandits) carry with them very crude weapons and even guns that they use against their opponents. They raid at night and take all the animals (cattle, sheep, goats and even camels). These animals they take to further places, as far as Ethiopia and other countries living total destruction behind. Due to the raid, some people loose their lives while others survive with severe injuries. There is an attempt to stop this by sending administration police to the affected best there is still no full change on the raid. The residents have always laid complaints to the government but the response in not satisfying.
