Fatima Ali

Fatima Ali is a 25-year-old House Officer at Jinnah Hospital in Lahore; she is ten months into a Junior Doctor placement.  She can work between 36-132 hours per week.

After a further four to five years of study, she will become a Resident Doctor.  Her aim is to specialise as an anaesthesiologist.

The CARE Foundation provided her financial support through a scholarship program to pursue college education. Fatima said: “If it were not for CARE, I would not have been able to attend college.”

Fatima’s father is a driver and her mother a housewife.  Her brother is studying at a CARE school and hopes to work as a software engineer or IT specialist.

Fatima attended the CARE Adopted City District Government Girls High School Qila Lachman Singh, in Lahore.  She was inspired by her science teacher, Ms Azmat, who helped her and her friend Aisha, with special science projects about physics and magnets, winning them third prize at a local science exhibition.

Fatima said: “The CARE school had a wonderful library and a science laboratory. CARE help so many children from nursery to matriculation on every aspect of schooling and with further education scholarships. CARE gave me a chance to work on myself, and enabled me to achieve what I want to do. I love returning to visit my old school.”

She added: “CARE schooling helped me get into a medical college. I would not be studying to be a doctor today without CARE’s support.”
