“My father asked for part of it at the mosque, and my mother also asked for some and then we added our 5,000 F [savings]... my mother got 1,000 F from one person and 1,000 from another, 1,500 from yet another. We had a bit of maize that we sold. I had three cloths and I sold these and added it all up and had 15,000 F, which we went to give [to the hospital].”
