My name is Evelyn, I am an 18 year old pre-medicine gap year student. In September 2016 I will be starting a 6 week trip to India - I will spend 3 weeks of this trip volunteering in a medical center in Delhi.
Considering the advances in India’s healthcare system, the majority of the population still experience poor health. This is due to a lack of awareness on health issues and the simple fact that many Indians cannot afford regular, if any, medical treatment. The projects Plan My Gap Year supports offer free, or highly subsidised, healthcare to local people from slum and rural communities.
I will work alongside medical professionals, giving me the opportunity to help other people and learn a lot about my future profession. I intend to make a difference, so please help me to do so.
I have been chosen to take part in the programme; and now I need to fundraise in order to go. My visa, DBS check, vaccinations, and the placement (includes accommodation, meals, transport, and money towards funding the project) will cost around £1000. If I am lucky enough to raise more than this, I will donate the rest to the medical project I volunteer with!
Please help in any way you can!
