Helping a Sudanese Refugee to Medical School in Uganda, Africa
So I found a request on GiveMeaning that I responded to.
Help send an African student to medical school! Uganda has only 1 physician for every 100,000 patients while in the United States there are 28 doctors for every 100,000 people. Patrick Otim is a Sudanese refugee living in Uganda. He wants to become a doctor and has the qualifications to do it, he just needs the tuition.
Patrick is in his second year, and they have already raised about half the money needed. Creating a doctor is like lending to a business, it will have a lot of good effects in the future.
