We currently fund 8 students all living in the Refugee Camps of Palestine. We pay all their University fees, their books and expenses from the Campaign.
5 years ago we met a young girl called Hiba from Aida Refugee Camp. She explained it was her dream to be a nurse, but would remain a dream, as she lived in a Refugee Camp and her parents could not work.
We came back home to Scotland and decided to fund her through University. This is how the Campaign was formed. She started her training at Bethlehem University and with a great thank you to everyone who has purchased or donated to the Campaign –
SHE GRADUATED ON THE SAME DAY AS OUR FUNDRAISING CONCERT BY THE WAKES.
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO HAS HELPED PUT HER THROUGH UNIVERSITY. SHE IS NOW WORKING IN BETHLEHEM IN CHARGE OF A CHILDRENS WARD. See her e mail below. Only another 7 students to go
