Humanitarian doctor pens down her challenges
Speaking on the challenges she's facing, Rose said she doesn't have enough hands to enable her to execute the job as she would love to.
She also stated that there are some severe cases which require finance but the families involved are not buoyant enough to tackle the medical expenses.
In her words:
"Not enough hands and severe cases which some of the students are not financially bouyant to handle are still left unattended too."
On how she plans to tackle the challenges, Rose announced her decision to write a report to the permanent secretary in charge of schools to see what can be done.
