Thank you for the many years that you have been supporting me with all my needs; Food, Shelter, Clothing, and Most Importantly Education without giving up. I have never lacked anything for all the 15 years that I was in SCANN. I remember joining SCANN as a young boy with only a dream but SCANN made it possible for me to achieve my dream of becoming a doctor. All this would not have been possible if it was not for your endless support. I will forever be grateful for what you did to me because I know that there is no way that I can ever repay you for what you did. I pray that I will be blessed in future so that I can give back to society in helping the needy just as you did to me and maybe even join hands with SCANN to take it to another level. May God bless you for the good work that you have always done and add you more so that you can keep up helping the needy.” David Kanyingi.
