Project: Ukerewe medical mission (March 25th to April 12th, 2020)
Start Date: 25/03/2020
I am a registered nurse currently working in Kingston, ON, and I will be sharing my skills with the small, island community of Ukerewe, Tanzania. We will be providing health care and support, with a focus on building continuing relationships and fostering independence. Along with hands-on nursing skills, a main focus of this mission will be health education, including women’s health initiatives and increasing the capacity of the local health care available. I have always been passionate about global health, and I am thrilled to be participating in my first medical mission with CACHA. Any donation to help me achieve this goal would be much appreciated, as each volunteer is responsible for their own funding. Donations will go towards field costs of the mission such as medical supplies and equipment, translation services, and transportation to and within Tanzania. Any help would be much appreciated!
The individuals on these pages are raising funds in support of CACHA’s mission. The funds are given to CACHA to defray the costs of participation in, and supplies for, the mission, and not for the personal benefit of any participant. CACHA retains control over the use of all donated funds. Once the needs for the program have been met, or cannot be completed for any reason, any remaining contributions will be used where needed most.
