Good news! In July I will be a registered pharmacist. I will have this amazing skill which I have spent 4 years in University to aquire and a year training in a hospital. Unfortunately, there are places in the world who are not as lucky as the UK to have a good supply of this skill. In Tanzania, there are about 2 pharmacist per 100,000 people. Rural Tanzania has unusually high rates of Cardiovascular dieases, Hypertension and 1 in 10 people are belived to be living with HIV.
As a pharmacist in Tanzania, I will be engaged in the following:
- providing education and support to staff at the Pharmacy and Health clinic in Moshi, Tanzania
- supporting the counselling services for people living with HIV and women living in inadequate conditions
- serving with a team of doctors and nurses, going on field trips into the local villages to run clinics for those who cannot access healthcare;
- and most importantly helping with the prescription of medicines for Hypertension and Cardiovascular disease.
I have been able to raise half of the money due to the kindness of some generous people; however I require £1200 to cover the trip. Please support me in this worthy cause by giving what you can towards this trip.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Lots and lots of love,
