I am so excited to tell you that I have decided to dedicate some of my time to those in desperate need. In February 2015, I will be joining Project Helping Hands team to provide health care and health education services primarily in Kampala and Kawempe, Uganda. I will have the opportunity to work with diseases that are rare or non-existent in the developed world. I will be able to witness these conditions firsthand, developing new skills and increasing my understanding of the progressions of these diseases. This is an amazing opportunity to immerse myself in the Ugandan culture and view the world from the eyes of the less fortunate. As a recent nursing graduate I am eager to learn about all aspects of the nursing field. I do believe this will be a life-changing experience and I can not wait to start on this exciting adventure.
I have already begun planning, researching and saving, but I will also need your help. To pay for my airfare, vaccines and program fees, I am looking to meet a fundraising goal of $4,000. I realize everyone has bills and everyday expenses of their own, but you can make this dream a reality by contributing to this fund. Your donation would help the underprivileged sick people of Uganda and really make a difference in the lives of others.
Thank you in advance for helping me reach my goals and I can not wait to come back and share stories and pictures from my trip. With your donation you are allowing me to achieve a life long aspiration.
