Read about some of the difficulties Congolese medical
and nursing students face on a daily basis.
- 32 year old male nurse
- Married with five children
- 3rd year of studies
“I didn’t finish my [High School] Diploma, and have been unable to get work to support my family or pay for my studies. I chose to study nursing as profession that will allow me serve my people but will also help me earn money to support my family.
I enjoy helping people who are unwell. I want to be responsible student and be able to continue to pay the fees, but it is very difficult. I find it very difficult to afford materials like books for my studies.
I am the only one in my family to study nursing.”
