    Story

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!

    As most people already know, I am definitely more of a yoga girl than a runner. However, on the 22nd April, 2018, I will be putting my yoga mat away and putting my running shoes on to take part in the ABP Southampton Half Marathon. I will be running in support of Selfless, a charity that aims to improve healthcare access for all.

    This summer, myself and several other medical students will be travelling to rural Sylhet, Bangladesh with Selfless. Over 60% of Bangladesh has no access to healthcare, despite it being one of the most densely populated countries in the world. In the UK, there are 9 maternal deaths for every 100,000 live births. In Bangladesh, the maternal mortality ratio is 20 times higher: there are 176 maternal deaths for every 100,000 live births.

    With the support of local doctors, we will be setting up health camps and providing free antenatal and family healthcare to those most in need. Your valued contributions will go towards the running of these free health camps and antenatal clinics, as well as providing treatment to the patients we will see on our trip. Volunteers pay for their own air ticket.

    We will be posting regular videos and updates on social media outlets using the #ElectiveAid2018, so you can see first hand the impact your contributions are making! If you would like to know more about the Elective Aid programme, please visit www.selfless.org.uk/skillanthropy.

    Thank you in advance for your kind donation - every donation will genuinely make a difference!!
