Weʼre raising £2,000 to Fund midwifery elective to the Philippines

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

In February I will be travelling to Iloilo, Philippines, with the amazing Work the World team to complete a four week midwifery placement as part of my degree.

In Iloilo I will be volunteering alongside the midwives and doctors working in a very busy unit. During the placement I will be caring for women who are having to share beds due to shortages, and looking after babies with abnormalities which are less common in the UK. I will be spending my time between the labour ward, pre and postnatal care as well as volunteering within the young parent unit within the hospital. In Iloilo I am likely to encounter women with medical complications which are not as common within maternity care in the UK including HIV and TB.

My elective is self funded and I would greatly appreciate any contributions which will go towards any resources I will be taking with me to use or to donate to the hospital as well as going towards the cost of the trip.

Thank you in advance for your help and support.

    Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! On 14th November I am co-hosting a speed quiz at Thomson’s Bar Edinburgh. The quiz is free to enter and there are some great prizes up for grabs in return for any donation big or small! It would be great to see everybody there - starting from 9pm!
