Giselle Tayal’s Story

“When I was a child, I spent most of my days in and out of the hospital being sick with malaria. My mother received basic training from the Red Cross that taught her how to care for my siblings and me when we were sick. Her care, combined with that of medical personnel, set an example and inspired me to pursue a career in nursing.”
