Dear Honorable Minister of Health Hon Silvia Masebo MP, Honorable Minister of Education Douglas Syakalima MP, and His Exellency Republican President Hakainde Hichilema,
I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to you as the Vice President of the Students Union at Levy Mwanawasa Medical University, with a deep concern that our institution has been overlooked in terms of student loans and scholarships, despite being a government-funded university. I kindly request your immediate attention and intervention in rectifying this situation.
Levy Mwanawasa Medical University has a strong commitment to producing highly skilled medical professionals who will serve our nation with dedication and compassion. However, we have observed that many of our deserving and vulnerable students face significant financial challenges in pursuing their education due to the lack of accessible loans and scholarships. This predicament places their dreams of becoming healthcare providers at risk and hampers the progress of our institution.
We firmly believe that investing in the education and future of our students is an investment in the nation’s healthcare system. By providing adequate financial support to these aspiring medical professionals, we can ensure a brighter future for our healthcare sector and, ultimately, the well-being of our citizens. With your support, we can bridge the gap and empower deserving students to fulfill their potential.
Therefore, we humbly appeal to your esteemed offices to consider the urgent need for student loans and scholarships at Levy Mwanawasa Medical University. We kindly request the government’s intervention in establishing a dedicated fund to assist vulnerable students pursuing medical education, making it more accessible and equitable for all.
We are fully aware of the numerous demands on your time and resources, but we believe that addressing this pressing issue will contribute to the overall development and advancement of our nation’s healthcare sector. We stand ready to collaborate with your ministries and the university administration to create a sustainable framework for these financial aids, ensuring transparency and accountability.
Your unwavering support in this matter would serve as an inspiration to our students, encouraging them to excel academically and professionally. It will also solidify the government’s commitment to inclusive education and reaffirm the belief that no deserving student should be denied access to quality education due to financial constraints.
We eagerly anticipate a positive response to our appeal and remain hopeful that you will champion this cause for the betterment of our institution and the future of healthcare in our beloved nation.
Thank you for your attention and consideration.
Vice President, Levy Mwanawasa Medical University Students Union
