Wilfred

Wilfred Kofi Twum is a 20-year-old, first-year general nursing student at the Drobo St. Mary’s Campus of the Holy Family Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Berekum, Ghana. Wilfred is from a family of four children. Both of her parents are unemployed and the mother is suffering from ill health. Several years ago, Wilfred’s father lost his job as a local mason and is now too old to do manual or meaningful work to support his family. When Wilfred was admitted to nursing school, his mother had to sell her small cosmetic shop to pay his tuition fees. Since then, his mother and father have been searching for sponsorship to ensure that their son can complete his education and become a nurse. HopE Ghana hopes to be able to support Wilfred and his parents so that he can achieve his dreams.
