Nfor Dieudonne / State Registered Nurse - Sop Integrated Health Center Ndu.

I was privilege to be trained amid other nurses for the 2012/2013 batch of candidates under the SHUMAS scholarship program (Spreading health). After graduation I have been serving in my community since February 24th 2015.

SHUMAS is paying my school fees for the second time now. My mother is of late and my father is the one that applied for this opportunity from SHUMAS. My father used to create and sell drums but recently developed problems with his legs and can no longer work. We are ten of us and our mother is of late. Thanks to SHUMAS for the opportunity as i promise to do well in school.
