Nursing in Africa

Raising money to help pay for my nursing elective placement in Tanzania

We did it
On 3rd April 2018 we successfully raised £140 with 5 supporters in 56 days

Hi I'm Lucy,

I'm a second year nursing student at edge hill and I am doing an elective placement in Tanzania in January 2019. 

This means I will be nursing (voluntarily) in Africa for 3 weeks! This is such an exciting opportunity and will be a time I can give so much to a country with so little. As you can imagine Africa is very deprived and the nursing will be very different from what I'm used to! 

Although this is voluntary and I will gain no payment at all for this the time I spend there I have to fund this trip myself. As you can imagine I'm struggling to find the money for this as the trip will cost at least £2500, For this reason I am fundraising! 

Any donation will be greatly appreciated and will only go towards paying for my 3 weeks of nursing, immunisations, accommodation etc :) 

Thank you!! 

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
