I was doing through depression

"I am very happy, and I am praying for all those who made this happen for me, it is like a dream come true. I was going through depression where I use to sleep during the day to escape life, but now I get up early and get ready to open my shop, I feel much better.” Menal Begum, 35, Bangladesh
