£865raised of £2,800 target by 26 supporters

    Weʼve raised £865 to help fund an international nursing placement in Vietnam

    Brighton, East Sussex
    Funded on Sunday, 16th June 2019

    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 a mature second year nursing student at the University of Brighton in Falmer. As part of our studies, an international placement has been organised and I have been successful in obtaining a two-week nursing placement in Hue, Vietnam later this year. It is a privileged opportunity to enhance my learning; understand cultural differences; and experience working in a low resource environment, particularly, the impact it has on patient care and how it is managed.

    As a single parent, working a part time job alongside my university studies, I am not in a financial position to afford the full cost and I need your help. I have been fundraising to achieve my goal - so far I have proudly raised £2200 through table top sales, raffles and generous donations from my lovely friends. I still have a short way to go and therefore really need your help.... Anything that you are able to contribute, however large or small, would be hugely appreciated. Thank you x

      Due to the recent bombings in Sri Lanka, the Foreign Office have advised us not to travel there and our placement has therefore been relocated to Vietnam - very similar learning opportunities and equal cost and so I continue to raise funds. Thank you so much to you all, I am blown away by your kind donations and only have £320 left to raise - there’s still time if anyone else would like to contribute. Any money raised over and above my target, will be presented to St Peter & St James Hospice in Chailey - a charity very close to my heart. x

      Just wow! I am absolutely tickled pink by all your kind tributes, donations and shares. Together with what I’ve been selling online, I now only have £780 left to raise to achieve my target. All your lovely messages of support will be put into my nursing journey book (please tell me if you don’t wish them to be included) but from the bottom of my heart, I am a truly grateful student. Despite not going until October, I have until June to fully pay for this trip so there’s still time if anyone else would like to contribute in any way x
