Elom Fiaboe

Elom is a 2nd year student of pharmacology, in the University of Euromed, in Dakar, Senegal. She writes:

It was with a great joy and surprise that I have received your decision to help with my college housing fees for this year. I am in my second year of Pharmacy education at the University of Dakar (Euromed). My dad did not hide from me his financial difficulties given that he had to retire. I know that nothing will be like before. That’s why your help is for me like a help from heaven. I will endeavor to use it as a faithful steward.
Once again, thank you so much,
Elom Fiaboe.
