Yes, good for her! I know money often goes further in the poorest communities, but most of us don't appreciate what we have.

15 kronor a day, that won't be easy. But, good luck!

Kudos to all who are striving to elevate the attention and understanding of others on hunger and poverty in this way!

Yes, kudos to all involved - 15 kronor is not much but you can 'survive' on that for at least a month, cutting down on eating 'to hell and gone' - may she exceed her goals!!!
