Donating to the Zahra Abdille and Children Scholarship
The Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario, together with St. Paul’s L’Amoreaux Centre, has decided to honour the memory of Nurse Practitioner Zahra Abdille and her children with a scholarship for those who follow in her Nurse Practitioner footsteps.
Beginning this year, one student enrolled in a nurse practitioner program at an Ontario university will be awarded financial help in the form of a $1,000 scholarship. The Zahra Abdille and Children Scholarship, which will be awarded annually, was created in an effort to honour the memory of our colleague and friend, who died far too soon. Additionally, it will provide much needed financial assistance to those who echo Zahra’s desire to help others by working as a nurse practitioner.
If you would like to help a student advance his or her education in this way, please consider a donation to the Zahra Abdille and Children Scholarship.
