To dear Laurie,

I thank for the strength you have given me, it really is something very amazing. I feel more motivated and willing to fight for my dreams, which is to be a medical doctor and to help people in my country, from children to adults and seniors who are experiencing extreme health problems. Especially in my province, where poverty index is high and the population is vulnerable to various diseases; and where the distance to health centers in rural areas is far and oftern left without medical assistance.
I wish a Happy, Successful 2016 for you !!
Thanks from the heart
Izildo

    I am living with my mother and my 2 brothers. My father works in a quarry in Pambara and he comes home sometimes on weekends or twice a month. My 2 sisters are married and live out of home. Our home has one room where my parents sleep and my brothers and I are sleeping outside in a hut on a mat and we have one old blanket to cover. I spent my childhood in Mangarela where I started school. After the 1st grade, I went to Maputo with my family for 3 years. Once back to Vilankulo, I started grade 1 again. During my free time, I go fishing to help the family and on Sundays, we go to church. My mother goes to the field 4 times a week. I like to play Neca and Football. I am grateful to get a sponsorship, because that will help us a lot.
