Susan Zimba had a dream, but little hope for making it a reality. Susan excelled in her studies and her dream was to attend medical school in Zambia and serve people living with HIV. Both of Susan’s parents died of AIDS and relatives raised her after their death. Susan was thankful that she did not contract HIV and for the provision of a place to live while she attended school. Despite having no funds to support her further education after graduation from secondary school she applied to medical school at the University of Zambia School of Medicine. Her excellent marks in school paved the way for her acceptance to medical school, but she lacked the funds to pay for the tuition and associated school fees.
In 2013, Living Hope Clinical Foundation was introduced to Susan, and she was allowed to delay her medical school until the fall of 2014. She now attends the University of Zambia School of Medicine with a partial academic scholarship, and Living Hope Clinical Foundation has been able to support Susan with fees for room and board, books, a laptop, and various other costs. She is proudly experiencing her dream become reality with the support of Living Hope Clinical Foundation.
