Feba Abraham qualified as a nurse in September and joined Manor Park Care Home shortly afterwards where she now works as a RGN.

Ms Abraham was awarded a first class degree with distinction in BSc Nursing. Her graduation was initially delayed by coronavirus and the rescheduled event didn't allow her enough time to fly to India.

Deputy clinical lead Kwanele Zama said: "Feba has been a great member of the team, she has settled well in the country and in the company."
