    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Between 5th March 2017 and 1st April 2017 I am going to embark on a once in a life-time opportunity; carrying out my Midwifery Elective Placement in Dumaguete, Philippines.

    As some of you may or may not know, I am currently a third year Student Midwife. With the fantastic training which is being provided at University and on placements here in the UK, I will take my skills and knowledge over to the Philippines, to provide both physical and emotional care to women during pregnancy, birth and after birth alongside healthcare professionals over there. This will be done in a local hospital and in communities within Dumaguete to women and families who are not as privileged to have access to the fantastic healthcare system we have here in the UK.

    Of course, this exciting trip comes with a cost. This trip is solely self-funded and completely voluntary. However, I know the skills and insight I am going to gain in the Philippines will be an invaluable life experience and towards my future career as a Midwife. I am carrying out this placement through the company ‘’Work the World’’, costing £1,690, however, this excludes flights, insurance and spending money whilst there.

    If you could provide a contribution towards this through my JustGiving page, I would be extremely grateful, no matter how small the contribution. Every pound counts and will help me to work towards this not only life changing experience for myself but hopefully a life changing experience for women in my care whilst in Dumaguete. If you are not able to provide a contribution, thank you for taking the time to read this page and look out for fundraising events which will be held between now and March.
