Weʼve raised £130 to help raise money for my elective in Dar es Salaam in Tanazania for a month within a company called Work the World.
- Edinburgh, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 23rd November 2016
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.
My name is Jenna and I am currently studying Adult Nursing in Edinburgh Napier University.
In February 2017 I will be travelling to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania for a month. This is within an organisation called Work the World. Work the world is a registered company and gives the opportunity for people working within healthcare to experience an oversea's elective. www.worktheworld.com
The money raised will be in support of paying for medical supplies, volunteering in hospitals and community, sanitation products, toys and clothing supplies for local children and families.
"Nursing electives in developing countries have the potential to change the way you see healthcare forever." To work without the various resources we have within the UK is a challenge I'm willing to happily accept. While i'm in Tanzania I will be working in hospitals with various diseases such as HIV and malaria. I will also see normal healthcare issues we have here in the UK from stroke to COPD. I will be working in hospitals but I am also be visiting a small villiage.
This opportunity is amazing and every little will help. This is hopefully only the beginning for me to able to help others and make a change positively.
Fundraising events planned so far: -
-10th September Coffee morning. Message me for details.
-Knitting or donating warm clothes for children.
Other events I will update.
