What does receiving this money mean to you?
Recieving this money means that I will be able to provide for my childrens welfare including their educational needs.Since I am a widow it has been so hard to parent the children alone from the time my husband passed on.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I am with my children and they are healthy by end of day.It puts a smile on my face knowing that the day has ended without any of them falling sick.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship is that my children frequently fall sick which sometimes finds me when I dont have any money for their medical treatment yet even just feeding is challenging.
