Weʼve raised £725 to support our visit to Cambodia
- Funded on Wednesday, 10th October 2018
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.
We are a group of 16 student nurses who are coming towards the end of our second year of studies at Teesside University.We are so grateful to have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to volunteer in a hospital in Cambodia for 2 weeks with the charity Transform Healthcare Cambodia.
The charity was established in 2011 to relieve sickness and to promote and protect good health for the benefit of the public, in particular but not exclusively within the Battambang Province through the provision of training to health care workers, education on the prevention of diseases and hygiene, the provision of equipment and financial support for such other health care related services as resources permit.
In 1975, Pol Pot led the Communist forces of the Khmer Rouge into the Cambodian capital city of Phnom Penh, beginning a vicious genocidal four-year regime in which an estimated two million Cambodians lost their lives. All intellectuals and educated people were eliminated, the health care system was entirely destroyed. It is estimated that at the end of the regime only ten doctors survived. Since this time Cambodia has strove to develop and improve healthcare provision with the support of Transform Healthcare Cambodia.
We will be supporting the charity for 2 weeks and the visit is predominantly self funded so any support you could provide us would be greatly appreciated.
