New DFN nursing student Neelam

We are very happy to announce that, thanks to your generous donations, we are able to offer additional funds to a new DFN nursing student, Neelam Yadav, to enable her to continue her nursing studies at Patan Academy of Health Sciences Nursing College in Kathmandu.  Neelam comes from the Terai region in Nepal and is 17 years old.  Her parents are impoverished farmers who lost their home and income in recent flooding.  Neelam is the youngest of 6 siblings.  Up until now, her paternal Uncle has been trying to support her studies but cannot continue financial assistance.  We are delighted to be able to step in to offer Neelam continued financial assistant so that she can enter into her 2nd and 3rd years of her staff nursing training.  Welcome to the DFN family Neelam!
