Mohammed’s bursary – May 2019

Firstly, I want to thank FQMS for their concern about supporting the medical students in Gaza strip, especially in the current difficult economic situation, which we have been suffering from.

By receiving my bursary, it alleviated some of the financial burden required for medical school, which, in turn helped and encouraged me to focus more on my studying. 

I have a family of six live in a house that has 4 rooms, my father works in Al Shifa Hospital in the maintenance department, my big brother graduated from IT college, my mother is a housewife, my other brother and sister are still studying in school.

I wanted to study medicine as it’s one of the most important Humanitarian fields and studying it gives me an opportunity to help myself firstly and then other people. In my opinion, I think that we have to work on stimulating the healing process of our bodies instead of the concentration on the management of diseases.

By receiving this bursary I can continue in my journey hopefully to work in research to provide an actual way of being healthy.

Thank you again for your help and support.
