Vimukthi Saddhamangala from St. Aloysius College Galle who scored highest marks for the Bio Science Paper and the IQ paper was awarded the 100% scholarship by IMC to complete his MD program at the Grodno State Medical University in Belarus. With this IMC Study Medicine becomes the first Medical placement service provider in the Country to provide Full Scholarship from their own funds to deserving students to achieve their dream of becoming a doctor but unable to do so due to various reasons. IMC also offered Financial Grants for 10 deserving students worth Rs. 1 million each.
Vimukthi Saddhamangala who hails from Rathgama Galle a past student of St. Aloysius College Galle and former Soccer Captain of the School is the third in the family of four Children of Mr. Sumedha Saddhamangala and Mrs. Sithari Geethika Mendis. Mr. Sumedha Saddhamangala a Forman in a private Engineering firm has brought up his four children from his single income as his wife Mrs. Sithari Mendis is a housewife.
‘Vimukthi was very studious and he was having this dream of becoming a doctor since he was in his grade 6 and he used to perform surgeries to insects whenever he got the opportunity’ stated his Grand Father Mr. Sugathapala Mendis who accompanied Vimukthi to Colombo for the exam as well as to accept the Scholarship offer. Mr. Sugathapala further stated that “he could not believe when he heard that his grandson was awarded a scholarship to study medicine by IMC” I am thankful to the Chairman and board of Directors of IMC Study Medicine for this noble gesture.
Vimukthi’ s Father Mr. Sumedha Saddhamangala said that ‘his Son gave up the idea of studying medicine since he was not selected to the local university and their family could not afford the cost of overseas education and enrolled for a Human Resources Course in an institution. This is a pleasant surprise to our whole family and we have no words to thank IMC Management for the opportunity of a lifetime granted to our Son’.
Vimukthi Saddhamangala the winner of the Scholarship finally spoke and stated that when he lost all hopes of becoming a doctor he received a call from Ms. Arunika Wanigasuriya whom he met at an education Exhibition and informed him that the Scholarship examination will be held on the 26th and for Him to come and sit for the same. Four days after the exam I received a call from Ms. Arunika, I was speechless and did not know what to say when I heard that I was the one who got highest marks and will be going to Grodno State Medical University to study Medicine.
“I would like to thank Dr. Gishan Sumanasiri Executive Director/CEO and rest of the staff for giving me this opportunity. Special Thanks to Ms. Arunika Wanigasuriya for remembering me and inviting me to sit for the exam”. I also would like to thank all my teachers from primary school to advanced level who helped me in my studies and the Principal of St. Aloysius College for the guidance given”
Dr. Gishan Sumanasiri Executive Director/CEO of IMC Study Medicine stated that “since the inception of IMC we have been enrolling highest number of students to overseas medical universities and providing a service that no other can match. Our Board decided to Launch this scholarship program annually and offer deserving student to pursue their medical dream at our cost. This is our social responsibility as a triple bottom line company and we will continue to contribute to the society positively in years to come”.
Dr. Sumanasiri further stated that on top of the full scholarship IMC awarded 10 financial grants worth Rs. 1 million each for deserving 10 students.
