I have been fully treated and 4 inhalers have been given to me, two Seretide Evohaler, for daily usage and another two Ventolin Inhaler for when my breathing is not fine. The chairman has paid for my treatment, given me money and asked me to be coming to collect inhaler on a weekly basis. May God continue to bless him and his family. I am indeed grateful.”
