Beatrice's family
access_time 4 days ago
Beatrice received a $486 third payment.
"I spent most of my third transfer on constructing a new house to replace the tiny one that my spouse constructed many years ago before he passed on. Since then, life became so miserable as I could not even afford a single piece of iron sheet to build a house. the moment my daughter, who was away, came back home, she was so shocked as she could not believe the kind of house that I had built. It took her with much surprise to learn of the good work that Give Directly did in my life. Besides that, I purchased a cow and a goat to leave a legacy for the good work done by the organisation."
