My family needs food and shelter
Organized by: sidahmed morsli
I came to the United States over 5 years ago dreaming to be able to practice medicine here. I love helping people and I loved being a doctor. Unfortunately, because of the cost of living in the US and problems with my vision (due to a genetic disease that causes retinal detachment) it quickly became clear that I would not be able to study for the medical boards while working. I all but gave up on my dream.
I am working full time at a good job to take care of my wife who is a full time student and our daughter but we are still struggling to pay school debts, medical bills, rent and then find enough money to feed ourselves.
In my culture we have a saying that one person cannot help a group but a group can help one person. If I can raise enough money to support my family while I study for the USMLE I can become a doctor and not have choose between paying our health insurance or paying our rent. So I count on your generosity. Whatever you can help with I will be grateful.
