The Global Giving East Africa Field Officer paid a visit to Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation (MMHF) on Friday May 15, 2015. Mr Kurz was presented with a brief of the Foundation activities. With funding from Global Giving 29 students have been supported. Twenty eight (28) have already got certification in nursing and are working in different parts of the country. One student is still persuing her program and is due to complete her course in December. Mr Kurz had the opportunity to meet the one student still at the Training Institute and one of those who completed his program in nursing. The pre-service student expressed her thanks to Global Giving for the support. The nurse who Kelly met at his place of work (Regional Eye Center) was very grateful for Global Giving support that enabled him to attain a certificate in nursing. He is now the sole financial support for his entire extended family. He has plans to further her studies in nursing. Thanks to the Global Giving family for all the support.

Of the 435 who graduated on that day 16 were supported with scholarships from Global Giving. Fifteen graduates attained enrolled certificates in Nursing while one attained a certificate in Midwifery. Most of the graduates have secured jobs in public/private health facilities. Our thanks go to Global Giving for having made this possible and our heartfelt acknowledgements go to the so many persons who donated the funds through Global Giving. Three students supported by Global Giving passed final examinations in January 2015 and will graduate in November 2015.
