"My name is Gideon. I'm nineteen years old and a devoted Christian. In 2010, my dad was involved in a ghastly car accident that claimed his life. A few years later, my mom was diagnosed with nephrolithiasis (a kidney disorder) which threw her health off balance. My mom's health challenges constitute a huge obstacle to the flourishing of her business. Consequently, she is unable to meet the financial needs associated with my college education.
"I have a dream of studying medicine (obstetrics to be precise) in college. My desire stems from my passion and concern for the welfare of pregnant women and their unborn babies. Obstetrics is indispensable to society at large because it helps to secure posterity by drastically reducing the rate of infant mortality. After studying obstetrics, I intend to save as many lives of infants (as well as their mothers) as I can, in my community and beyond. That's my passion!
"I've passed the entrance exam, so finance is the only thing standing in my way of attending college. I humbly ask for your assistance to meet my financial needs, including college tuition and dormitory. Thank you in anticipation!"
Be a hero today--help change a life! Your gracious gift, whether it be $5 or $50, will help change not only one life but help many other people--women and their babies whom Gideon will potentially touch with his medical skills as an obstetrician. He has so much love to give to his community in Nigeria by ensuring that mothers are properly cared for before, during, and after childbirth so they can bring new lives into this world with as few issues as possible. But he can obtain his medical training only with your help. Will you show your love to a brother in need today?
When we unite in love, we become a powerful force that can make this world a better place. Each of us is a pebble that forms into a mountain when we stand together, hand in hand. Become a pebble in our mountain!
