I am a registered nurse currently working at Leeds General Infirmary. I have met some inspirational individuals during my career so far and witnessed first hand how nurses change lives. One of my colleagues, Chris, set up the charity Eating Stones Fund aiming to relieve poverty and sickness in urban and rural Kenya, through education and access to effective and holistic healthcare.
Eating Stones Fund offer student nurses, in rural Kenya, assistance with their educational costs in cases where they wouldn't otherwise be able to complete their training. It costs approximately £3,500 to train a Nurse in Kenya. With over a decade of experience working with children and vulnerable people in Kenya, Eating Stones Fund wants to continue to help train as many nurses as possible, with the knowledge that healthy people leads to healthy communities.
To raise funds for this amazing charity, I will be taking on the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge on 27th April this year with some of my work colleagues. Thank you for taking a look at my page. I hope you can support this cause by donating whatever you can.
