That is exactly what goes through our minds... A sad, but realistic, situation in your story.
Gritty, realistic portrayal of the event, the awkward conversation and of your MC's emotions and swirling thoughts. I feel that clearer paragraph breaks would give it greater impact, as would keeping to one tense. Since it confronts us with a social and spiritual wound that is not going away, you may get away with keeping it in present tense. But overall, very well done.
Very, very much pain in this world! Well done!
The battles we fight in our minds, whether or not to give that cash...
A space between the paragraphs would help make it easier to read.

Other than that, it's an excellent piece.
