Due to my old age, I have so many health problems. My eyesight is very poor and I can barely hear. It would be a relief to receive treatment and live healthily. This money will be of great help with this.
What is the happiest part of your day?
We have had so many family feuds. My spirit has been damp the past couple of years I cannot find any joy in anything. Maybe moving away from the people who keep fighting me will restore my peace and joy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My son and I decided to build another house and move away from the rest of the extended family. The cost of building is very high and we are stuck at the finishing stage. I pray for some financial breakthrough so that we can live comfortably.
