‘It hurts me to see sick people’

EVERYTHING starts with a dream and for seven-year-old Dingile Zulu of Chipata, she will not be deterred from becoming a medical doctor.
Dingile says the sky is the limit. She has a passion of taking care of the sick and this has prompted her to dream big.
She is determined to be added to the list of emerging doctors owing to the fact that the country has embarked on building more health facilities in both urban and rural areas.
It is her hope that she beefs up the low staff levels in the health sector.  Dingile offers a fervent prayer that God guides her to complete school and does what she knows best: caring for the sick.
