Cycling from London to Paris in 3 days- 280miles total, 14 September 2023
SAFE is a joint project between the Association of Anaesthetists and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA). The training equips anaesthesia providers with the knowledge and skills to deliver safe anaesthesia.

Story

Charlie, Malin and Finn are cycling London to Paris in 3 days. It will be tough, but we thought it would be fun and worth the pain to fundraise for a good cause close to our hearts.

Malin and Finn are travelling out to South Africa/ Eswatini (previously Swaziland) in early 2024 to volunteer as Medical student/ Doctor respectively. And Charlie had a kidney operation last year and can confirm he was glad for the anaesthetist.

We decided to fundraise for a medical charity before we go to contribute financially in addition to volunteering.

We selected SAFE, a charity which provides vital training in anaesthesia to allow better access in poorly served parts of Africa.

Around the world people are suffering or dying unnecessarily from the lack of safe anaesthesia in surgery, something that is taken for granted in the UK.

The SAFE campaign is dedicated to raising funds for programmes where the need is greatest by scaling up the delivery of three-day SAFE obstetrics and paediatrics training courses and sustainably improving anaesthesia education and care in the long term.

£500 could pay for 5 anaesthetic providers to complete a SAFE course.

£750 could pay for all of the training materials for a SAFE course with 32 participants.

£1,000 could pay for the completion of a SAFE course including training materials, travel of delegates and a USB for each participant.
