On the 19th of July I'm going on a solo trip to Costa Rica to volunteer on a turtle conservation site. The focus of my placement is on endangered species' welfare and protection but I'll also be doing work that benefits the local community. Any money I raise here will be spent on improving the basic level of nutrition, hygiene and education of the people I meet by donating the following kinds of items:
Vitamins, anti-lice treatments, anthelmintic medication, hygiene supplies like toothbrushes/soap/shampoo, school stationary, medical supplies like bandages/latex gloves/hydrocortisone, children's clothing, etc.
The £251 figure is the minimum prescribed by GoGetFunding but I'd be delighted with any amount of money raised. Donations (no matter the size) are hugely appreciated to support this incredible part of the world that is threatened by exploitation and climate change.
