Medical School Tuition Fundraising
My name is Mduduzi Thabede, a 21- year- old African gentleman.
I am truly grateful for your time and for reading my story.
I believe that becoming a doctor has always been in my destiny but I need all the help I can get from you.
I was raised in deep rural KwaZulu-Natal villages, near a town called Pongola, devoid of day to day amenities that I believe most people would take for granted. Despite all odds, with fierce dedication and hard work, I graduated from high school with distinction and was offered a place to study Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery in one of the best Universities in Africa – The University of Witwatersrand in South Africa.
I am currently in my third year of this incredible six- year- long programme. Since my enrollment, I continuously strive for the best and persevere simply because I understand that nothing worth having comes easy.
However, late 2017 during the examination period disaster struck. It came to my attention that my alcoholic abusive father had become devastatingly violent and my mother’s life was endangered. Given the weight and urgency of this life threatening situation my mother found herself in, I, as the eldest son of the African family had no choice but to return home and protect my mother until the authorities step in.
I, therefore, take full responsibility and I'm taking this initiative to try and raise the funds to help me cover my tuition. This made me realize the only way of saving my family is keeping my head focus on my school work until I finish this degree regardless of matters at home. My dream has already been delayed and I wish not to further delay it due to financial constraints.
This period of unavoidable absence resulted in me missing the end of the year examination, consequently the loss of the bursary and thus accumulation of debt in my student account.
I strongly believe that with as little as a rand/dollar, I can get to R160 000 (~$12 800) and clear my tuition.
I fear that without your help I will be financially excluded and a heart-wrenching end to my dream. These are the reasons why I started this "GoFund-Mdu campaign", in the hope that you will assist me in raising the funds to cover my tuition. I’ve worked immensely hard to be where I am and am willing to work equally as hard in the future so that I am able to take all the skills I’ve learnt back to the poor African communities.
