    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Hello! I am currently in my final year studying adult nursing at London South Bank University. As part of my nursing degree I have the opportunity to choose an elective placement in any chosen place. I have decided to travel to the Philippines to volunteer for 4 weeks.

    This choice has been heavily influenced by the nurses that I have worked with during my clinical placements throughout my studies. From speaking to some of the nurses it has been made apparent that nursing in the Philippines is difficult due to the lack of medical equipment, drugs and bed spaces. This will be a great opportunity for me to gain experience with the local nurses as well as develop my nursing skills.

    I have chosen to work with a company called Work The World, who provide healthcare students with the opportunity to experience the challenges of health care delivery in a country with minimal resources. The money I will pay to Work The World then gets redistributed back into the local communities and hospitals to support their healthcare system.

    As you can imagine all of this comes at a cost. I need to raise money to pay for our flights, accommodation and vaccinations for the trip. I also aim to raise money for resources such as medical supplies, books, clothes and toys for the local community.

    Being born and raised in the UK we sometimes take for granted the benefits available to us and forget that there are others less fortunate than ourselves. We are fortunate enough to have the NHS, in the Philippines healthcare is not as readily accessible to all.

    This is my opportunity to give back!!
    Please help me get there any donation is welcome.

    Thank You
    Nicole

    P.S I will also be doing other fundraising events to help us raise money for this once in a lifetime trip! xx

      Hi! Thank you to those who have donated so far! We have decided to get individual go fund me pages. I will continue to use this as my own personal one. Just a quick update. Work The World have accepted my application, my deposit is down and I will be going to Iloilo in the Phillippines next year June. I will be spending two weeks working in the hospital and for the rest of my stay I have opted to stay in a small village taking part in an outreach programme
