High costs of studying medicine overseas has quickly eroded funds set aside for rent, transport and insurance, amongst other petty expenditure. Although these expenses only make up a fraction of the yearly school fees, the ability to set aside time for a casual job has made making ends meet extremely tough. Even if expenses for food and sustenance is reduced, there are still bills such as rental and transport (between school and the hospital) that has to be budgeted for.
While I am unable to return anything tangible, I will remain accountable for any funds raised and will strive to reach out to the community and treating patients as people and not just objects of diseases and illnesses in my course of studies and training. Even cent that is contributed or donated to this fund is greatly appreciated - the significance of that 1 cent is often felt most when the landlady collects rent from me each week - "not a cent less".
Your kindness and faith in me is greatly appreciated and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
