Thanks to your generosity and the successful 2016 year-end fundraising campaign, together we were able to fully support all ten Gretta Scholarship candidates. We’re delighted that all of them have taken up their studies, including work with patients, with great commitment. Precious shared, “I admire the way the nurses handle patients with care and love, and the unity amongst them teaches me to handle patients the same way.”
Here you can see our new direct entry scholars receiving some of their supplies: Anatomy and physiology textbooks, a nursing manual, blood pressure machine, clinical thermometers, nurse’s scissors and a nurse’s watch, flash drive and composition books.
We are also thrilled that four Gretta Scholars have successfully completed their programs. Their messages to us are full of appreciation and excitement. Phiona writes, “I’m really so grateful for your support. I managed to finish the state final exams and I am waiting for the results that will be released soon. Your kind hearts are now going to save hundreds of lives in our country Uganda. Every blessing I receive from a patient comes back to you.”
Thank you so much for your generosity. Together, we give these dedicated young people a chance, and they multiply that gift a thousand-fold in their communities.
