As the EFSTH is the only teaching hospital in the Gambia, and the main referral center for the whole country with a capacity of over 600 beds, I strongly believe that our support will uplift their health sector and considerably contribute to the community as well.

We are committed to further enhance the scope of our support to EFSTH and the people of Gambia in the future, he expressed.

Awais Raoof said that all selected students would have the opportunity to study at UoL and the primary goal of these scholarships was to support and uplift the education and health sector in The Gambia.
