  1. While it is good to say thank you, however it is not good to continue asking for help through out your lifetime.
    Our governments have resources to cushion all the shortages in the budgets etc.
    This can be seen from the wastage of finances through stealing by those who are supposed to be stewards of government finances.
    We always learn of misused finances in inflated figures to purchase either fire tracks or ambulances or road infrastructure building, if all these finances were properly accounted for the story can be different to day.
