I am doing my nursing placement in Tanzania at the end of this semester and would like to raise some money for supplies. At the moment there is a huge cholera outbreak happening in Tanzania, with infected drinking water causing thousands of fatalities. Our aim is to educate local communities in the importance of hygiene, nutrition and basic prevention of illness.
As students, our group has come up with many different ideas to implement this education, but we also need the funding in order to buy supplies for these communities to put what they've learnt into practice.
As well as providing primary healthcare in a rural community, we're going to be doing placements in the main national hospitals of Dar Es Salaam, for which we need to take our own nursing supplies (gloves, dressings, antibacterials etc).
Any donations would be so so appreciated, and any resources we don't use will be donated in Tanzania :-)
