Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My ambition in life has always been to care for those who are less fortunate than myself. Therefore, as part of my university nursing placement I have chosen to volunteer in a Children’s Hospital in Sri-Lanka, providing babies, children and young people with the quality nursing care that they deserve.
Limited access to health care is an issue in many countries therefore I want to experience first hand nursing in Sri-Lanka. I plan to use my nursing skills to be able to make a difference to the lives of these children and young people and endeavour to give them the best care possible.
I hope will gain a knowledge of tropical diseases, a better understanding of culture and diversity and learn to deal with emergencies with limited resources. All of these skills should enable me to develop into a more rounded and effective practitioner in the NHS.
As there is no university funding for my placement I am working hard to raise as much of the £2000 it will cost by running fund raising events. However, any donations to this page would be greatly appreciated.
