Weʼve raised £10 to go towards Rachel's Uganda placement
- Funded on Tuesday, 31st October 2017
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.
I'm Rachel and I am a second year student. I have an incredible passion for what I do. In July 2018, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to be able to go on a nursing placement in Uganda for 4 weeks, however I have to fund the trip myself.
The cost of the trip is £1495, and this doesn't include my food and drink for the 4 weeks, or the cost of any vaccines or malaria tablets that I will need.
I would love to be able to fund this myself, but currently this just isn't possible. I am only getting £2880 this year with my NHS bursary and my maintenance loan combined, and I need that money to be able to travel to and from uni and placement.
Any help at all towards this would be incredible and I will be forever grateful!
