Isla's Voluntary Medical Work Experience,Tanzania

Help support me with funds towards the costs of undertaking voluntary hospital work in a deprived rural area of the country this summer.

My name is Isla Symons, I am a seventeen year old student currently studying for my A-Levels in Cornwall.
The project I am undertaking is two weeks medical work experience in Africa this summer that would increase my chance of getting a university place on a degree course in the medical field next year.
