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.
Next summer, I will be travelling to Sri Lanka with SLV on a mental health placement for 5 weeks. Sri Lanka is still suffering from the impact of the 2004 tsunami and the civil war ending in 2009, leaving many people suffering with physical and psychological trauma. SLV is a charity that aims to improve mental health services in Sri Lanka, where there is still widespread stigma, by training volunteers to support people with mental health issues.
I will receive training to work in a psychiatric facility and a rehabilitation centre, as well as working on Youth Teaching Projects; teaching English to children and adults who cannot afford education.
This is a fantastic opportunity for me to help those affected by mental health issues and to raise awareness for mental health in Sri Lanka.
Any donations are gratefully received!
