Mercy Koti Fri, Redemption Higher Institute of Biomedical and Management Sciences (Cameroon)
Fri Mercy Koti, a level 300 student of RHIBMS, was born and raised in Banja, Bamenda – Cameroon. Growing up in a rural community, Mercy pledged to find a solution to one or more of the community problems. Chasing this course of action led her to co-founding two non-governmental organizations with a primary focus on community benefits. Since joining RHIBMS, she has grown tremendously. The opportunities given to students to take initiative and be actively engaged in community activities pushed Mercy to start the micro health insurance scheme, which goes a long way in promoting and maintaining health among students and raising capital to enable students to empower themselves and the community.
