Before going into the full description, I want to thank you for even clicking on this gogetfunding page and considering donating. It means the world to me that you would take time out of your most likely busy day to read this. Thank you, even if you don't donate, it still means a lot that you're here.
My name is Carl Spencer. I need your help to educate more doctors for Africa. Therefore l call upon you friends to help raise funds to help put or fund continuing Medicine Students into College.
Together with our team of Wellwishers have created this Fund to Educate more Health Practitioners for Africa. Using this campaign alone we aim to atleast put and/ fund 10 Academically gifted students get into medical school annually.
OUR AIMS ARE TO :-
1. Increase the patient to Doctor ratio. This is another really ignored issue in Africa. In Zimbabwe we have had an issue of a medical practitioners losing his life to covid-19. Leaving behind him a chain of surgeries which are short staffed of to not at all any Resident Doctors onsite.
- Did you know that, on average African states have 0.2 doctors per 1000 population?
World Health Organization recommended doctor to population ratio of 1:1,000 the “Golden Finishing Line” in the year 2018 by most conservative estimates.
Help us educate more doctors for Africa by joining our cause.
2. Reduce the strain that students have to go through in order to finance their studies. Persuing Medicine is costly even in developed countries let alone Africa. Some pupils end up being duped in ponzi schemes online trying to make quick money inorder to make ends meet in College.
OUR STORY :-
This story begins with a dream that evolves into something beautiful but now has come to this very saddening pause. I ask that you take a few minutes in your day to walk in my shoes and understand why we need your help, why I need you donate to this cause and share it with you friends and family.
Our pupils come from disadvantaged communities. Their guidians make a living from trades like street vending and many other low income jobs. Recently faced by unemployment many other parents and bread winner from our various households due to the emergence of the covid-19 pandemic require your much needed assistance to cover their children's tuition.
Faced with such situations as the pandemic and the constant devaluing of the Zimbabwean Dollar. Parents are faced with the burden of seeing their children's dream crushed to bits as they are not been able to pay the much needed fees leading to tight deadlines and even dropping out of Varsity.
Going to Medical School is an absolute dream come true for them.
I want the people who dream this dream to get financed to persue it. Hence, today right now Africans and the world as a whole. l challenge you to join us and make a small donation towards educating a Health Practitioner who will inturn one day lookout for your needs when that undesired time of your life knocks on your door.
OUR MESSAGE TO YOU :-
Whether may it be a generous donation of as little as 10$. Please be assured that your generosity will not go unnoticed as it will go a long way to help fund brilliant young minds. That will inturn treat you one day incase you are faced by a fatal illness.
Our program won't stop here. As we hope to launch more of these such initiatives in the heart of the health sector. We hope to create more Funds in Zimbabwe and later Africa to finance communities' medical and equipment costs with Medical Practitioners as primary sponsors/wellwishers.
As l alluded earlier a single loss of a General Practitioners in African communities leaves a huge gap of the so much needed proffessional medical assistance. As in most of our communities here in Southern Africa clinics receive doctors atleast once a week and 4 times in a month. To us as an organization, that's a huge problem that requires lightning speed attention.
FUNDS ARE USED TO PAY & OR FUND TUITION COSTS FOR 10 MEDICAL STUDENTS IN AFRICA ANNUALLY.
We kindly appreciate all your help and you being with us in our journey. We hope that your remain healthy and safe during these trying times.
