Dr Aadil Moerat Trust Bursary South Africa 2023 – 2024
ABOUT THE BURSARY PROVIDER – DR AADIL MOERAT TRUST
Dr Aadil Moerat Trust Bursary South Africa | The Dr Aadil Moerat Trust was formed in honour of the late Dr Aadil Moerat, a general practitioner and anti-apartheid activist, who was tragically murdered in 1998. Dr Aadil Moerat Trust was known as the “people’s doctor” due to his commitment to community health activism – Moerat graduated from UCT and opened his practice in Gugulethu before his passing.
Moerat believed in universal health coverage, that all people should have access to the health services they need, when and where they need them, without financial hardship. The Trust was formed to commemorate the life and legacy of the late Dr Aadil Moerat and to give back to students from financially needy backgrounds, who are also committed to community work.
