Dumaguete needs our help & we need yours

Hello fellow friends, family, students, healthcare professionals and volunteers!

We are second year Nursing & Midwifery students who are heading off to Dumaguete in The phillipines in January 2015 to work voluntarily through a company called "Work the World". We will be working in a village Hospital in the areas of birthing/postnatal and acute medical/trauma areas. The situation, as with majority of developing countries is that these people have limited or no access to basic sterile medical equipment. Items such as needles/syringes for example; are in such short supply that health workers have no option but to re-use them several times, in order to treat their patients.

Our main goal is around much needed medical supplies to bring over with us. We are however, hoping to have a small amount left over in order to be able to fund the expenses of our neccessary immunisation and visa requirements.

In the phillipines, mothers still die during childbirth. 5% of all births don't see children survive to their 1st birthday and 12% of all babies die at birth!

We're know theres many causes out there for people to donate too, but we're hoping that you can relate to this as a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, godmother, friend and reach out to help us make the difference were aiming to make!
