What does receiving this money mean to you?
Since I am an aged person, accomplishing the essential household chores, including maintenance of my house, has become more challenging. In that regard, receiving this money means that I will be relieved of some of such tedious tasks. This is because I will spend at least two-thirds of the transfer on building a semi-permanent house. Aside from rendering maintenance services easier, living in a less dusty house is ideal for me because my ailing eyes do not need smoke or dust.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Since my ailing eyes act as the biggest challenge that I am currently facing, identification and use of appropriate drugs have brought me lots of relief and happiness. Currently, I am using some drugs consisting of tablets and eye drops. This has dramatically lessened the pain that I have been experiencing.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
About two years ago, I had eye surgery. Though it was intended to be a corrective and treatment strategy for my ailing eyes, it has proven otherwise. This is because one of my eyes is no longer working at all while the other one is partially okay. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing lots of excruciating pains since the operation. In brief, my ailing eyes act as the biggest challenge that I am currently having.
