“I am a emergency and trauma student at NCMTC”

Salim is a third year, male, diploma in emergency and trauma student at North Coast Medical Training College in Kenya. He has one older brother who is also in North Coast MTC and four younger siblings. His parents are separated and it is normally his father who is a shopkeeper in Malindi who pays for his fees. He is an above average academic performer both theoretically and practically. He keeps good social relations and he has shown that he is ready and willing to learn despite the challenges he is undergoing. Since the measures of the government were implemented the lockdown and stay at home orders affected his dad’s income severely since they had to close the shop early and due to the general fall of sales due to lack of customers.
