“I am from Kuliyapitiya. I lost my husband 15 years ago and I make a living from selling “Kole Kanda”(herbal canjee) I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer last year and did 3 operations. I have Two daughters who are married and cant really help me much. I have a son who works as a laborer on a daily pay. I borrowed money today to come to the clinic. Apart from the transport re-imbursement I was also informed about the financial aid program where help is given o improve a livelihood. I took the forms today to ask for help”
