«Today is a special Thursday for me! On August 11, 8 years ago, I joined Doctors with Africa CUAMM. And started to work with professionals who dedicate their time and energy to Africa, often giving up so much to help the most vulnerable.
To hold the admistrative role in this organization means going far beyond accounting, logistics, mobilization and management of resources to implement projects. At CUAMM I have the opportunity to support mothers, children and other fragile groups to have access to quality health care and therefore to improve their well-being.
I am proud of my small contribution: in 8 years, my skills have saved the lives of malnourished little ones, patience with HIV and chronic diseases. It is exciting to reap the rewards of my hard work. The achievements of doctors, nurses and non-medical staff to assist people to the last mile. I am proud to be part of a team that strives, daily, for the right to health of my people!
Foundamental to me were Mahatma Gandhi’s words, “Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it”. If each of us enacts the insignificant, we will collectively have a huge impact in people’s lives, therefore, we must do it!
Eight years ago, I started with small prject management, eventually moving on to deal with articulated projects. CUAMM gave me confidence, as did my colleagues, who helped me grow professionally and as a human being. THANK YOU!».
