My name is Akhere Okonofua. I am 22 years old and currently a final year student, majoring in psychology and physiology. My dream has always been to become a medical doctor; and when I received my acceptance letter from the University of Pretoria I was excited and ecstatic. All my hard work and perseverance is finally paying off. My excitement was short lived as it dawned on me that I will not be able to secure any financial aid regardless of my many efforts and attempts.
Last year, 2016, I managed to secure a merit bursary for tuition for the year 2017 by acquiring outstanding academic achievements; viz. 4 out of 6 distinctions. In 2017; I was awarded a medal and 2 academic certificates for being top achiever in both of my majors. This was all in my current university - namely Sefako Makgatho University, formerly MEDUNSA.
I would like to ask for your kind assistance in helping me pay for my fees and making my medical dream a reality. The funds will go towards covering my tuition fees, accommodation, books and other study material. I'll be registering in January 2018; and will need to pay half my tuition fees and full accommodation by May 2018.
Funds can also be deposited to my bank account:
- Bank Name: Capitec Bank
- Bank Country:South Africa
- SWIFT code for Capitec Bank: CABLZAJJ
- Branch Code: 470010
- Account Number: 1552513546
- Reference: Akhere Okonofua
Your help would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
