This is Ibu Desak, Guna’s mother. She is an amazing woman. She is a mother of 3 children. After her husband was diagnosed with colon cancer, he was unable to work and she now takes on the role of providing for her household. She works at a local market and when she is finished selling, she works her second job as a butcher. Sales have been low at the local marketplaces.
When the Know Indo team visited her and said we would help cover all education costs for her son Guna, she was very grateful. It meant so much to her and their family. She is grateful to all the donors who have helped to ease the burden on her family. She found it very difficult to meet the needs of her family and the extra costs of her husband’s treatment. But now one burden has been lifted.
