Naomi Vanbeselaere, General Practitioner.
I’m 31 years old lady and work as a general practitioner in Belgium.
After graduating in family medicine as a doctor in 2018, I packed my suitcases and left for the Gambia (the smiling coast of Africa). A low resource country where medical care is scarce and young people with talent often cannot pursue a medical degree because of financial shortages.
Although my passion is to work in the field as a doctor, I started to realise that another way to attribute to health care in Africa, is to train locals in the field by giving them acces to education.
As I worked in the Gambia, I became part of the local community. Anna-Maria Sambou, someone from the local church choir, became an close friend. Her passion and capacities to becomes a medical profession inspired me. That’s why I’m convinced it’s worth investing into her future, by financing her studies to become a nurse.
