I do come from a very humble family where our income has always been low. Getting the fees to take me to school has always been a problem but the grace of God has always enabled me through the well-wishers.
On looking at so many people suffering in the community and yet they don’t have the money to pay for the hospital bills, I decided to join the medical field so that I can be of a help to the people living with diseases.
I am right now in Mengo school of Medical laboratory technology studying a certificate in medical laboratory technology a two years course. I became compelled to join the medical after seeing several of the following cases in the communities.
1. People dying on hospital floors un-attended to by the medical personnel just because they don’t have the money to pay for the service.
2. Pregnant mothers dying together with their babies un attended to just because they lack money.
3. I have seen so many patients having prescriptions for different diseases and yet they are suffering from different diseases just because no diagnosis was done by the qualified medical personnel.
4. I have seen people dying for taking over doses of drugs. Particularly on this note, we have recently buried a 19 year old senior four boy for taking over dose. The young man developed malaria and was given Coartem by the parents.
Because the boy was shivering, he was taken to the clinic where he was injected with Quinine immediately.
Because of the two strong drugs taken at almost the same time, there was over reaction in the Liver and the Liver was destroyed. The boy became pale and died after a few days.
5. I have seen people contract diseases from wrong environments which could be avoided if they had been advised by the health personnel.
However on the sad note, I have run short of money for the tuition and the hospital administration wants to throw me out for failing to pay the tuition. I am therefore requesting you or any one or any charitable organization you can reach to help me and pay for me the tuition so that I can finish the medical course and be of a help to different communities and the world at large After the medical laboratory technology, I want to study to study clinical medical at the university.
The tuition fees at the hospital school of medical laboratory technology is 1300 US Dollars per year, a total of 2600 US Dollars is needed to finish my two years course.
I will be grateful if helped Am looking forward to hearing from you soon. May God richly bless you.
