Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In July-August 2018 I will be going to Thailand and Vietnam for volunteering and medical experience. It will be 5 weeks in total, whereby I will have to engage with locals and serve communities in these places, which aren't as fortunate as we are.
A large focus of my project in Vietnam will be childcare to help underprivilaged children get the best start in life they can possibily get by teaching them, playing with them and giving them an insight into what lies beyond their current lives. Vietnam is still recovering from a brutal war and there is still a lot of poverty and lack of resources in the country, so the children of Vietnam don't have the same opportunities as children brought up in the west.
I will also be going to hospitals in Thailand to provide an insight into international healthcare and it will be invaluable experience for me in the years to come.
Overall, the main aim of this trip is to actively go out and help, and to experience the world for what it is. It is to understand and help to resolve worldly problems and deficiencies.
Sometimes charity doesn't mean just giving your Zakat (charity), but sometimes it's better and more rewarding to help people in person. This project will be an amazing experience for me, to get to know more about international health and safety systems, to communicate with different people and to get the most experience of working with all sorts of people, which is essential in a career such as medicine.
So please donate (as much as you like 😉) if you love me😗, if you know me (directly or indirectly) or if you believe in me and my goals. Thank You. And may God bless you all InshAllah. 😁
Please note if anyone wants cupcakes too - 24 - it will be £35 and obviously the money will go towards my volunteering. Thank You.

About the fundraiser
London Borough of Sutton, United Kingdom
I am a sixth form student, who will be applying to medical school next year. I feel that charity and experience with different people should be a part in everyone's life and sometimes this means more than just giving money, it means going there.
