"The biggest in my daily life is that, I have been in position to take my children back to school in time.

I expect to sleep in decent clean house, free from dust once the plaster and the floor is worked on. Before receiving this transfer, I didn't have enough money to buy cement and sand since the money I got was used to pay my children's school fees and buying food."
