£257raised of £2,000 target by 11 supporters

    Weʼve raised £257 to help towards the cost of our placement, but more importantly at least 25% raised will pay for medical equipment when we are in Tanzania.

    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 charity.

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


    On 5th October 2018, Alex Hughes, Kim Dolan and myself are flying to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to undertake a 2 week international placement at the Muhimbili National Hospital as part of our Nursing Course. Alex and I will be in the Emergency Department and Kim will be in theatres. Culturally it will be a huge shock to the system. The Operations Manager at Work the World (who organises the placement) told us that people will die with minor ailments and that if someone walks in to the ED and collapses, Tanzanian nurses will finish their conversation first before attending to them.

    Some of you might think we are being cheeky and asking you to supplement a holiday (M & S you know who you are!) Yes we will be going to Zanzibar for the weekend before starting, and also going on a safari during the middle weekend,but it would be silly to go all that way and not make the most of the experience.

    The reason we are fund raising is that not only are we paying the initial fees to Work the World but we also have to pay for flights, travel insurance, £150 for vaccinations, 2 sets of scrubs to take with us as well as our own PPE (gloves, aprons, shoe covers, masks, alcohol gel etc), the list continues. Plus we want to take cash with us so that we can help to buy supplies at the hospital or help out individuals. An example given was a lady needed £28 to buy a tacheostomy tube - this was a fortune to her but students at the Work the World house clubbed together and bought it for her.

    We will be fund raising during September in Eastbourne and Hastings and will post details on here and Facebook as well as progress reports. Thank you in advance for your support xx

    We are 2nd year nursing students who are undertaking an international placement and would like to raise some money to both supplement our trip and help give back to the Tanzanian economy through buying medical equipment.
