He said he had to spend the money before going out of the world but what did was really unbelievable. All his life he struggled to make both ends meet so he, in fact, did know how to use the money. When his lottery winning became the issue of the common knowledge people started asking him for financial help and Nguyen Van Het handed almost everything leaving some small money for the rainy day. His neighbor even had to contact the local authorities for them to appeal to Nguyen's reason and stop the “charity” before he was out of money at all. Before becoming rich Nguyen received some financial support from the authorities living on the breadline. In that way, he tried to repay the society. All in all, he bought a TV, some meat for himself as well as a sack of rice for his family and neighbors.
