Salomon 04:52 PM, Nov 09, 2022

It is a humble heart that I must ask for financial assistance due to financial problems. Bir, my husband accident few months back and I haven't been able to pay our home utilities bill and because of that our home is disconnected from power electricity supply. My parents has no income, the entire responsibility of the house, bills and livelihood have fallen upon my shoulders. Please understand that I would not be asking for this financial assistance if I could satisfy the problem on my own, but I am left with no other choice.
