Introduction

My name is Enas Halawa, and I am a medical resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology in Palestine. I have noticed an increasing number of complicated fetal and newborn deformities and anomalies recently in my home country Palestine and I decided I would like to learn more about fetal medicine, how to diagnose these cases early enough and best way to manage them perinatally.

I am considered as one of the best in my class and I have done lots of research projects. I am one of the few doctors in Gaza who are trying to provide up to date and evidence based care for Gaza patients.

My Plans

I knew that the best option to diagnose such cases early enough and with a resource limited place like Gaza is to master ultrasound skills. Unfortunately, I could not find anyone who is competent enough to teach me advanced techinques in Ultrasound in Gaza and that is why I decided I should go outside and try to get better experience in a more sophisticated place and I made contact with Canada.

I was able to arrange an intensive three months training program in fetal medicine and ultrasound diagnostic approaches and this will be in Toronto. I will be an affliated postgraduate visiting physician with the University of Toronto and CISEPO will arrange the logistics.

CISEPO stands for Canadian International Scientific Exchange Program Organization and they are a group of hard working doctors who aim to build better bridges with the middle east by promoting better health and building capacity programs.

Why I need your help?

Unfortunately, I faced a huge financial obstacle that I need your help with. I need to raise funds for my stay in Toronto for the three months period, which includes but not limited to rental, living expenses and transportation.

I will be paying $1000 a month for rental which will include utilities, and $1000 a month for other expenses. So in total I will be needing $6000 to cover my expenses for the period of three months.

Timeline

The other obstacle for me is the very limited timeline. I need to raise the funds in less than two weeks because I need to apply for the VISA as soon as possible and travel to Canada by mid to late December. I have to go in December because this is the only time I am authorized to be on leave from my current training program in Palestine.
