I don't think it's about money for bala.
That money offer just give him a something like reason to believe that they care about him.
So they won't act like burden.
They just throw a bone to him like they care and know it would be tough for bala to handle one more person so they enact like they were also trying to understand bala.
Seriously I don't know about others.
But it happens mostly and everyone know they will not take money and in end tgey will say she is also family just like my daughter why are you paying money.
It just gave some satisfaction to bala that they care about his condition
