From a very deprived family, a young brilliant Ghanaian boy had to struggle to complete high school and despite having obtained remarkable grades, Abdul Razak, nearly missed an opportunity to pursue tertiary education.
The young intelligent student received admission to study medicine at the University of Development Studies (UDS) but nearly missed the opportunity because his parents couldn’t afford to pay his admission fee before the deadline.
Despite having obtained 6As in Elective and Core Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Social Studies and Integrated Science, Pelpuo Abdul Rasak, was compelled to dim any hopes of pursuing advanced education and live his childhood dream of studying medicine.
As time went by, the young teenager and his family became desperate for help to ensure that Abdul Razak makes payment to meet the deadline.
But fate would finally smile on Abdul Razak and light at the end of his struggles.
Crime Check Foundation, took on the benevolent gesture to fund the admission fee for the brilliant teenager to ensure that he assumes studies as planned.
While the amount was not disclosed, Pelpuo Abdul Razak will finally get to pursue his studies in medicine at the University of Development Studies (UDS).
