KIDA'S GRETTA SCHOLAR JOINS DIPLOMA NURSING PROGRAM

The Friends of Ruwenzori Foundation recently collaborated with The Gretta Foundation, another California Bay Area nonprofit, to send one of KIDA's talented young people to Nursing School at Nsambya Hospital in Kampala. Donors to FORF's Delia O'Hara and Herb Johnson's Memorial Scholarship Fund can be very proud of Jonan Atuhaire, the young man pictured on the left, who passed the tough entry requirements to join the program. He is pictured here with his classmates who began their three-year training as diploma level nurses in November 2016. (Diploma nurses are equivalent to RNs in the US.) These young people would not otherwise have the financial means to attend nursing school, were it not for this Gretta Foundation program, which addresses the severe shortage of qualified nurses in Uganda.
