    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 preparing to go to Ikethelo in Kwa-Zulu Natal near Durban in S Africa where I will be the nurse in charge at a small hospital of about 40 beds.
    I haven't nursed for many years but feel I have been called by God and so am going in faith. I am travelling with an international volunteer organisation called TWOWEEKS who have a strong Christian ethos. I have to say I'm absolutely terrified! But I do trust in God and even though I wonder how I will manage (as I have several significant health problems of my own ) I will hang on tight to my faith. If I receive more funds than I need I will give the excess to TWOWEEKS to continue the great work they are doing both in S Africa and Peru.
    Thank you for reading this, I do hope you feel able to support me.
