  1. Assalamualaikum
    senang sekali saya bisa menulis kisah nyata kami
    dan berbagi kepada teman-teman disini.

    Meski hidup dalam keprihatinan, karena hanya mengandalkan penghasilan dari jual gorengan, namun rumah tangga kami terbilang harmonis. Jika berselisih paham, kami selalu menempuh jalan musyawarah. Hal itu wajib kami terapkan untuk menutupi aib dan segala bentuk kekurangan yang ada dalam rumah tangga kami agar tidak terdengar oleh orang luar. Karena begitulah pesan dari para orang tua kami.

    Hari demi hari aku habiskan hanya untuk bekerja dan bekerja. Hal itu aku lakukan, selain sadar akan tanggung jawabku sebagai orang tua , juga ingin menggapai harapan dan cita cita. Yah, mungkin dengan begitu ekonomi keluargaku dapat berubah dan aku bisa menyisihkan sedikit uang penghasilanku itu untuk masa depan anak-anakku dikemudian hari. Namun semua itu menjadi sirna.

    Selanjutnya kami pun melangkah untuk mencobanya minta bantuan melalui dana gaib tanpa tumbal,alhamdulillah dalam proses 1 hari 1 malam kami bisa menbuktikan.

    Jalan ini akan mengubah kemiskinan menjadi limpahan kekayaan secara halal dan tidak merugikan orang lain.

    Alhamdulillah semoga atas bantuan ki witjaksono terbalaskan melebihi rasa syukur kami,
    saat ini karna bantuan aki sangat berarti bagi keluarga kami.
    Bagi saudara-saudaraku yg butuh pertolongan silahkan
