"There is no worst feeling than losing a job. Since my husband lost his job, it has never been easy for us as a family. I rarely sleep thinking of where we will get the next meal or even the next terms school fees for my children. When I go to bed, the best I can do is to stare at the ceiling, tossing in bed and thinking who was going to give me the next casual job to help me pay school fees or even buy food. This is not the case since I received money from GiveDirectly. I have peace of mind, honestly, I have been having deep nights of sleep now since then. I feel like my load is lighter now as my children were able to stay in school for the whole term without being sent out for fees and the only worry now is to look for daily meals. At least one load at a time."
