£1,100raised of £1,200 target by 23 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,200 to Help me volunteer in a midwifery placement in Tanzania

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.


I am coming towards the end of my final year of my midwifery degree at the University of Greenwich and as part of my course, we do elective placements which invaluably contribute to our learning and experience. For my elective, I am travelling to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania in February 2019, to volunteer alongside midwives in a busy maternity unit, caring for women in labour and after birth. By this time, I would have just finished my degree and looking to start my first job as a registered midwife.

Due to a severe lack of resources, staff, equipment and education, Tanzanian women are dying in pregnancy and childbirth. Working in this vastly different environment will prepare and expose me to clinical situations unlike any I have experienced in the UK. I believe this journey will ultimately prepare me as a confident autonomous practitioner.

This is a self-funded placement and including my flights and trip, so far, I have earned over 60% of the money I need. Any donation to my placement would be immensely appreciated. Any extra donations above target will go towards supplies they so desperately need.

I absolutely love what I do, and hope that I can help in any way possible.
