    "HIFA has been like a tablet, it has come at a time when people are so stressed - so many problems. But HIFA has brought people together. So, despite the problems, it's been like a therapy. It's made people forget their troubles. I, for this whole week, have forgotten about my troubles. I have not gone to the bank to get my salary.
