My name is Nomathamsanqa Sikakane, a fourth-year student, at the University of Cape Town. I am studying towards a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB). I write this letter to request assistance to raise R85,000 (US$6000,00) to pay for my outstanding fees for 2019. This will enable me to access my 2019 results and register for my 5th year in 2020.
I do not qualify for government funding which is the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
From a young age, I have always had a dream of becoming a doctor. I have a passion for helping people, and as a doctor, I will have an opportunity to put this into practice. I am also fascinated by the human body and how it functions. Having interacted with patients during my practical session, I have seen how grateful people are for the little help we provide and this puts a smile on my face and has made me even more excited about achieving this degree.
Any help towards paying the outstanding fees will be greatly appreciated.
