I am fundraising to do a weeks work experience in Tanzania in the last week of August. This is through and organisation called Gap Medics. Gap Medics provides opportunities to gain hospital work experience for students interested in medicine, nursing, midwifery and dentistry. As some of you know, I would like to study nursing/midwifery at university. This placement will give me a great opportunity, whilst getting a feel for what area interests me the most, I will also have the opportunity to see cases that I will never have a chance to ovserve here in England - tropical diseases such as Malaria, TB and Typhoid are all common in the hospitals overseas.
The cost of the placement costs £600 and the flights vary from £450-£700 depending on how soon I book my flight. so any donations would be highly appreciated.
