Thelma Recovered from Malaria and Now She Wants to be a Doctor

Thelma is in 6th grade at Daylight and she wants to be a doctor. Her passion came after she went to the hospital with Malaria.17- Thelma

“I want to heal people who are sick. Because last year I went to the hospital. I was at Daylight in the dorms and my body got very cold. I went to the doctor and he gave me medication for malaria. It helped me feel better, but it took a long while. I missed school for a long time. I had to borrow books from my classmates to catch up. My teachers sent homework for me to work on. But finally I got better and came back to school.”

Thelma’s experience gave her a passion for medicine. “I want to help people to be hopeful even when things get difficult.”

Thank you for supporting Thelma and all the students and staff at Daylight.

Please make a year end gift and a pledge this year to support our students in 2018!
