How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
My life is currently better than it was before I began receiving my transfer, because we currently have food in the house. For the first two months after lockdown, my family members had to skip basic meals since I did not have even a single saving to spend on food. It was an unbearable experience to me, seeing my children going to sleep hungry.

How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
My life is currently better than it was before I received the first transfer. At the moment I have some food stock which I bought with the transfer I received. Prior to receiving transfer, life was hard and I could occasionally go without food and other basic needs. This is a timely help and I am really grateful to GiveDirectly.
