Weʼre raising £800 to complete a four week elective placement in Uganda

- Time left
- 11 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hi my name is Katie. I am a 3rd year nursing student at London South Bank University. As part of my studies, I'm in a lucky position to be able to be part of a unique nursing experience.
In JUNE 2017 I will be flying to Uganda to spend a month volunteering and working within Acute and Community Healthcare Settings, to deliver nursing care to sick children and their families.
I will also be delivering health education to young children and the communities to help improve their health and their future outcomes.
Not only will I be sharing my skills and gain experience through healthcare within the developing world, but this trip will also fund VITAL and LIFESAVING treatment for individuals in Uganda.
I feel this will be a very rewarding experience and help develop me as a person in preparation for becoming a newly qualified nurse. This would also enable me to experience nursing from a completely different angle and grow personally and professionally.
This placement has already been partially funded by my supportive parents, thank you so much mum and dad I really appreciate everything! But I do need to raise the rest of the money by February 2017.
I would really appreciate any donations - no matter how big or small!
Thank you in advance for your support, it will be so greatly appreciated.

About the fundraiser
Loughton, United Kingdom
I am going to Uganda for my nursing elective to help provide care for sick children and the community. The trip will also fund vital and often lifesaving treatment for individuals and communities I will meet during my time in Uganda.
