Letter from a CHTI graduate, nurse and tutor



21 March 2022


Dear Donors,

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for making Solidarity with South Sudan scholarship possible. I was thrilled to learn of my selection in 2018, for this honor, and I am deeply appreciative of your support.

I’m CHTI alumni, intake of 2012-2014, Registered Nursing, after completion of my diploma I worked for St. Daniel Comboni Catholic Hospital in Wau as a Registered nurse/maternity in-charge from 2015-May-2017. Furthermore, I worked in Wau teaching hospital as a Surgical ward nurse- mainly working in Theatre, Female and male surgical Ward from May 2017-August 2018. I was awarded a scholarship by Solidarity with South Sudan to go and upgrade my diploma and pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing in Kenya.

In Sept 2018 I joined the Great lakes university of Kisumu-Kenya, Bachelor of Science in Nursing -upgrading program. The program was for two half years. However, Covid-19 extended the program to three years. Because of your support, I was able to learn in a conducive environment. I’m forever grateful, for the way you stood with me during the pandemic, despite covid-19 crippled the global economy. Also had an opportunity to practice in departments that we don’t have here in South Sudan such as Psychiatric, critical care units, renal units, and neonatal units.

After I graduated from the university, I joined CHTI as a tutor, as well sometimes I help in the clinical department, I taught Gynecology nursing for second-year nursing students and co-tutor with acting deputy principal/academic mistress Madame Silvan in Anatomy and Physiology II for first-year student nurses. I also serve as a mentor to nursing and midwifery students. I’m passionate to take my nursing career to next level in the future. I would love to pursue my master of science in nursing-specialization in midwifery.

Thanks so much again for your generous scholarship. Your kindness enabled me to find a home at the Great lakes university of Kisumu-Kenya and to excellent education and skills. I will never forget your generosity. I would have not become who I am today if it wasn’t because for your generous support. I promise to give back to society, by doing my best to any service assigned to me by CHTI.
