Many workers send a share of their wages abroad to support loved ones financially, a responsibility they may or may not be able to shoulder. In this episode Joice Etutu explores the aspirations of those supporting family overseas plus the emotions, pressures and difficult questions that arise. What is the right amount of money to send, how do you choose between competing requests, what personal sacrifices do you make and where do you draw the line or say no?
