Hi there! I am Yves from the Philippines. I grew up in Bulan, Sorsogon in Bicol Region. Just recently, I received a good news from the World Health Organization in Geneva that I was one among the 70 out of over 500 applicants qualified to take the Advanced Course on Health Financing for Universal Coverage in Low-to-Middle Income Countries on November 18-22, 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland. I was extremely delighted to learn about this opportunity and the thought of representing Philippines. However, I got second thoughts as I might not be able to attend this prestigious activity as the organizers only covers for waived registration fee. This means that selected participants have to shoulder travel and accommodation expenses which is estimated to be at least USD2100.
At this point. I wish to grab this opportunity to seek your support in making this dream a reality. I am a Filipino public health practitioner who's passionate in advocating for important causes such as disease awareness (e.g. noncommunicable/ chronic diseases and mental health) and health system strengthening in the Philippines. I plan to contribute to my home country through doing knowledge transfer and sharing my learning to my fellow public health workers. In this way, I know somehow that I can contribute to my country's goal of achieving universal health care. This may be too much to ask but I am positive that your kindness can help me better support my country by enabling me to attend meaningful training opportunities like this one in Geneva.
Thank you very much in advance and may God repay you and your act of generosity!
