What does receiving this money mean to you?
I am 90 years old, at this age, there is little that I can do with such money. My desire has always been to get someone who can help my son in taking care of some of my responsibilities. The things that I need mostly are medication and food because I am prone to a lot of diseases and the drugs I use require me to take nutritious food all the time. Receiving these transfers, therefore, means that I will be able to buy drugs and food without having to burden my son with them.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I was bedridden for close to two months, my family was losing hope in me surviving because they did not have enough money to take me to a good hospital. Fortunately, towards the end of Feb my son got some money which he used to take me to the hospital where I got treated and now I feel much better. I was very happy when I saw the joy in my family's eyes after months of seeking help so I can get medication.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My age has brought a lot of illnesses like back and neck pain and osteoarthritis. My son has been struggling to buy me drugs and food so that I feel better but the responsibilities he has are overwhelming him because of lack of source of income. It saddens my heart when his family goes without eating a that I can eat because the drugs that I use require energy. Lack of money to buy drugs and food is therefore the current challenge that I face.
