Weʼre raising £1,000 to get Jeanie to Africa as a volunteer nurse

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.


In September 2018 I will be visiting Ghana as a volunteer nurse and I need your help!

I qualified as a nurse in 2009 and since then on a daily basis I have been experiencing new practices, medicines & challenges within the NHS. There comes a time when you feel that you need to share this privileged knowledge with those who need it most and those who cant afford it.

By taking time away from the comfort of my Cornish hospital, I want to challenge myself in an environment that I am far from used to. Healthcare in Ghana is slowly improving, however they are still poorly resourced and understaffed. The presence of volunteer nurses help with the burden on stretched resources and help to give a more personal caring service to patients, 100s of whom are admitted everyday for illness caused by poor drinking water and sanitation as well as disease such as Typhoid, Polio, TB and malaria.

I have made the decision to use a few weeks of my annual leave from the NHS to travel to Africa to be a volunteer nurse in a rural hospital. As well as this being a volunteering position, it also has to be funded entirely by this is where your help and support can make a huge difference.

Costs include: Flight to Ghana £500, Registration to the mediacal volunteering association £125, Accomodation £200, Food & water £100, Medical supplies (including endless supply of imodium!!) £50, Travel expenses £100

Thank you for your kindness,

Jeanie x
