Dears Friends and Supporters,
Each day our Gretta Scholars and Graduates do remarkable things. Empowered through your support and their own perseverance, our Scholars at every level of study feel pride in their growing knowledge and skills. For that, and for your faithful support, we at The Gretta Foundation (TGF) give thanks.
We are so pleased to be able to share our scholars’ own words:
Judith: "I am most proud of providing holistic nursing care mostly to the neglected helpless patients who have lost hope, courage and even faith."
Kato: "I am proud of resuscitating a dying patient brought in [to the hospital] not breathing and in shock."
Jonan: "I am proud of scrubbing in theatre during operative procedure. When I can use instruments to arrest hemorrhage, clean the incision site, and the procedure becomes successful."
Winfred: [I am most proud] that I can now deliver the placenta, the membranes and arrest hemorrhage and also monitor the mother after the 3rd stage of labour. These skills have helped me save the lives of many mothers and babies.
Benson: "I am most proud of carrying out nursing procedures appropriately…Just image how satisfied [I am] when l administer [a] blood transfusion to [an]anemic patient! Within a matter of minutes, the patient comes out of the danger and wakes up saying 'Asante [thank you], Nurse, bye-bye' as s/he move to go back to his/her home while smiling."
To date we have supported 57 Gretta Scholars. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you immensely.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
