I am travelling to Tanzania this June to volunteer at a local hospital and learn about health care in a poverty-stricken third world country. I am going to be volunteering at the local orphanage as well. This experience will given me practical, hands-on experience for nursing school. I will get the opportunity to learn about diseases not found in North America, monitor patients, help deliver newborn babies and assist doctors with patient care. I am raising money to bring medical supplies, toys, clothes, food and school supplies to the local hospital and orphanage. Any support anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. If you would like to learn more about the organization I am going with, you can check out the website at www.gapmedics.com.
