Announcement of Sponsorship Recipient on August 7, 2020
"Volunteer nurses have a special calling to promote health and healing to those that may not have easy access to healthcare. Whether local, or international, volunteer nurses travel to areas where urgent care needs may arise or continual healthcare is needed. Typically, access to clinical facilities are limited to those seeking help. We advocate for the ones suffering, their families, and communities alike. We not only use our clinical judgment but we infuse them with belief, hope and prayer. We do not discriminate against any group or religion but come wholeheartedly for those in need." Elaine

Emily Ndaba is the grandmother to Nurses with Purpose founder, Elaine Ndaba-Alston. It is our honor to continue her legacy through the sponsorship program visiting Johannesburg, South Africa, the birthplace of Elaine and where nurse Emily began her career. Nurse Emily broke may boundaries by fighting in an apartheid nation and being a black nurse to work in one of the most prestigious hospitals in South Africa. Becoming a sponsorship recipient not only speaks volumes of who you are but also carries on a legacy of a family who cared for the sick and vulnerable even when they were volunteering.
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue to introduce humanitarian service and outreach to a deserving future nurse. This creates a brand of nurse that is highly intuitive to the processes of nursing globally. We hope to curate an individual to meet the needs of others culturally, spiritually and holistically through the power of giving back in public health. Your generous donation will fund sponsorship for the nursing student to participate in global outreach.
