Inspiration: #SupportDolapo

Friday, February 12, 2016 was the beginning of a miracle. Dolapo Igboin set up a “Go Fund Me” page detailing her  financial struggles and her dreams of a career in Acute/Emergency Medicine. Her page recognized the magnitude of her request for £25,000 to complete her final year of Med School and even described the thought of raising the funds as ‘impossible’. Acknowledging that the odds were against her, she set up the page as a cling to her last source of hope.

Before now, I never really paid much attention to such pleas…. I couldn’t relate. I didn’t know those people. But this time, was different…. this time, it was happening to me. This time, it was happening to all of us (Nigerians) bearing the brunt of FX scarcity or dwindling oil prices. This time, Dolapo’s story hit me like a ton of bricks and like everyone else I began to tell anyone that would listen to join me in helping her.

This post is not about how much each person contributed, it’s not even about Dolapo raising over the £25,000 . It’s about the overwhelming sense of oneness which everyone showed. It’s for the relentless encouragement and the selfless rallying. It’s because little drops of water really do make the mighty ocean!

Dolly bay-bay, we are all your family now! Your struggle, is our struggle. God has never disappointed and you are a living testimony that he never will. Congratulations in advance for making it to your final year. Make us all proud!!!
