Ayham’s Bursary – September 2018 Newsletter

I decided to study medicine at university, because being a doctor means the future is full of hope, the hope that I can give it to people and make them suffer less from their diseases or injuries. Once I achieve my degree and my internship in Gaza, I will specialise in brain surgeon. It’s a specialty that can help people here in Gaza, because people often have to travel to receive treatment and while people waiting for referrals and visas the diseases can get worse. I want do research and studies that related to this field and try to add something to it, something that will make the humanity suffer less and giving it the hope.

Unfortunately last year, my father died leaving me and my mother and 3 brothers. We live in a rented house, neither my brothers nor me nor my mother work and the only source of income is my father salary from the government. Two of us are studying at IUG and the other two are still at school. The tuition fees are very expensive and I was worried that maybe I could not continue with my dream of becoming a doctor.

Thank you for this money. We are all so happy that I was chosen. It helped me to enrol for the next semester at IUG, helping me to continue my way to becoming a doctor.
