Weʼve raised £665 to Fund a mission trip to the Good News mission hospital in Mandritsara, Madagascar
- Funded on Saturday, 18th August 2018
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.
Before I leave for university this autumn I wanted the opportunity to experience a completely different way of life and a completely different culture whilst also making a difference to people's lives. Therefore, when the opportunity of working with a rural hospital in Mandritsara, Madagascar for a month arose I couldn't turn it down.
My Godmother Vicky has worked as a missionary optometrist in Madagascar for many years and so this summer is my final chance to visit her and help with the work she does in rural communities out there.
I will be working closely with the children out there, helping at their kids groups, which provide them with a safe and fun environment which sadly they do not always have. It will be a big learning opportunity for me and is a real once in a lifetime chance for me to make a difference to people's lives by aiding the work of the hospital (you can find out more about what they do here http://www.mandritsara.org.uk/)
Unfortunately this trip does cost a lot and so I have been saving money from the job I've worked alongside doing my A-Levels, but I would be forever grateful for any gift to contribute towards the trip, it would make the world of difference. I am doing a sponsored walk of the length of the whole Malvern Hills on the 22/06/18 to help fundraise for it! Any sponsorship would be welcomed! Thank you!!
