|“I am Lual Mapiu Auyam 30 years old. I graduated from Catholic Health Training Institute (CHTI) in 2021 ,now doing the second year of my bonding agreement in St. Daniel Comboni hospital. I worked in the Paediatric ward for 10 months. I was appreciated by the hospital authorities for my work and I was promoted to be the ward in charge in medical ward.
For me, being a nurse is not just a passion but a mission for all that he received as a student. I find myself to be by the side of the patient who is in pain and nowhere to go for help.I sometimes work beyond my duty hours because I know the patient needs me and no one else can offer what I can offer to them.Also I love to do God’s service.
I was born in a village in Aweil, around 140 miles from Wau town.I have two brothers and one sister.. My father died in 1995,when I was three years old.It happened during the war where we had no access to health facilities to treat him and save his life.
After my primary schooling,I was doing small business to support my family while my elder brother was studying senior grade. Later my brother supported me to finish my senior grade 4 .By chance I got information from my parish priest about the opportunity in CHTI. I thank God for this opportunity to continue my studies.
Besides helping my family for their sustenance and treatment of my younger brother, I am able to help my elder brother set up a business in Wau town, also to continue his studies in the catholic university.
My greatest joy is to serve my community here and see the health situation improve in our country..
I dream to study further and help my fellowmen in South Sudan.”
