    Weʼve raised £595 to Phelophepa Train of Hope

    Funded on Thursday, 16th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    I am in my third year of Optometry and I am currently raising money to fund my trip to South Africa this summer where I will be volunteering for two weeks on the Phelophepa Health Train, also known as the Train of Hope.

    On the train I will working in the eye clinic section, carrying out an average of 15 eye examinations per day on people in rural communities, to help improve their sight and their standard of living. As well as this, I will be providing these people with glasses and any medical eyecare advice they need. I will be assisted for these two weeks by a fully qualified optometrist. Any more information about the Train of Hope can be found here:

    The estimated cost of the project is around £1000 per student so any donations would be greatly appreciated. I am really looking forward to being a part of this amazing project, and having the opportunity to impact on people's lives by helping improve their eyesight.

    Thank you, Aleena xx
