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.
Fundraising page for two medical students in their 3rd year.
We spent the month of September 2018 working at Shukura Community Hospital in Accra. We were able to see first hand exactly how different the health care system was in comparison to what we are used to. We saw an alarming number of patients unable to pay for health care, this meant many of them suffered in silence at home in order to avoid coming to the hospital. As a result many people die or become far more ill. For example we saw several patients who had Malaria and postponed coming to hospital until it was so late the malaria had affected their brains.
We aim to raise enough money in order to send money to the hospital annually to pay for the health insurance of patients called the NHIS. The NHIS is only 5cidis(40 cents) annually but even this small amount is a lot for many people in Accra. The insurance covers treatment against tropical ailments such as Malaria and Typhoid Gastritis, Gastroenteritis, allows surgeries to be subsidized, lab analysis and scans and many more essential treatments.
A portion of the money will also go in to a fund. This means that any time a patient is unable to pay for their treatment money will be taken from the fund to allow them to receive the care they need.
We have already been able to send £1040 to the hospital which, has been able to help hundreds of people. The more we raise the more we can help.
