    Weʼve raised £410 to Buy medical supplies for a rural hospital in Sri Lanka

    Kandy, Central Province, Sri Lanka
    Funded on Saturday, 31st March 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 charity.

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


    As part of my Adult Nursing degree, I have been given an amazing opportunity to select my elective placement in Sri Lanka - Kandy. This placement will take place in April 2018, where I will be spending four weeks working within the hospitals and communities. As part of the programme I am hoping to spend a week living with the locals learning how they create their own medication from natural resources. I have decided to Volunteer with a company called 'Work the World', who create a safe, enjoyable experience. This company hire local people to run the programme enabling us to see the real Sri Lanka,  what  the  healthcare  is  really  like and to also support their local communities. Although  the  destination  I  have  chosen  is  going  to  be  a  once  in  a  lifetime  experience  for  myself,  with  great  learning  opportunities. I am also going to be able to give something back to the locals who are less fortunate with healthcare. I  have  decided  to  go  abroad  to  a  country  that  doesn't  have  the  luxuries  like  the  NHS  to  be  able  to  give  something  back. I have chosen to work in cardiothoracics for two weeks, followed by a week in ICU and then a week living with a local family.

    Speaking with work the world recently I have decided I would like to use the money raised to buy medical supplies for the local hospital that I will be attending. This local hospital is in a very rural village with limited supplies of medical equipment. With speaking to work the world they have advised that I don't give the money (cash) directly to the hospital in case it is spent inappropriately but to supply them with things such as bandages, slings, sterile drapes etc. They have also asked me to buy these in shops within Kandy to give back to the local businesses. The hospital its self is run by a doctor who practices with Ayurvedic Medicine (Tree medicine) therefore I don't think I will need to buy medications etc.

    This is why I have set up a  just giving  page  as  I  will  be  doing  fund  raising  activities  such  as;  obstacle  races,  cake  sales  etc.  So please  help me help the locals in Sri Lanka by donating even if  just  a  few  pence,  every  little  helps.  ;)

      I am a second year student nurse, who has worked within the healthcare profession helping people for around 7 years. I now would like to help the less fortunate individuals in Sri Lanka who are not as lucky as we are with the NHS.
