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.
So in September 2018, I will be spending my month working in a Cambodian hospital as a student Radiographer. I am so excited and interested in learning about their culture and how they run health care compared to our beautiful NHS,
Here are just a few figures about life and health in Cambodia...
1. Life expectancy : female—65 years; male—57 years
2. Cambodia’s infant mortality rate, despite improvements in recent years, is still in the bottom 10 percent worldwide
3.The health care system is inadequate. In the 1990s some hospitals had no running water and Health officials used elephants outfit with loudspeakers to announce polio vaccination campaigns.
4.1 in every 7 children in Cambodia die before they reach their 5th birthday; 1 in 10 children die at birth
5.35% of Cambodians live below the World Bank’s “dollar-a-day” poverty line
How theses all seem like awful facts, things are changing and progressions are being made. I would love to help progress in my profession and help make some difference out there so if you could please help a little towards this, it would be very much appreciated.
