Spay and Neuter Trip to Ooty, India

大家好,我很榮幸地被選中去代表本人現就讀的獸醫學院,參與連同國際志願組織Worldwide Veterinary Services,一行十人於明年一月到印度烏提(Ooty)進行為期兩星期為流浪貓狗進行絕育手術以及向村落的狗隻注射狂犬病疫苗等義務工作。狂犬病非常盛行於泰國、印尼及印度等東南亞國家,獸醫團體一直致力與世界衛生組織以及醫療團體合作,不遺餘力地打擊狂犬病在一些落後的地方以狗傳人的方式廣泛地散播予當地人。這次印度之旅除了是對我的個人發展有正面幫助之外,也希望就今次的義務工作能夠喚起身邊的人對自發性到落後地方工作的重要性。本人於這個學期現正接受專業手術訓練,完成後將於屆時分別擔當手術師以及麻醉師完成多項絕育手術。本人曾於香港海洋公園,香港愛護動物協會等本地大型機構工作,今年七月亦到四川卧龍大熊貓繁殖研究中心進行交流體驗,除此之外在澳洲也一直在本校的大動物醫院(馬,牛,羊為主)以及當地一個野生動物康復中心作獸醫助理的工作,所以我的過往經驗跨越各種動物類別,也對動物傳染病有充分的認知。我明白各位會對我健康以及人身安全有所擔心,但我們一行十位學生以及supervisors會一起行動,食物以及食水亦都有合資格的供應商照顧。
我衷心希望各位能夠支持我隻身到印度的工作,明白自發性的慈善之行、為控制傳染病等工作非常需要身邊人的關注。我很興幸我可以去到呢個階段,由當初只係想做一個獸醫,去到依家勇於面對所有未知的人生經歷以及計劃將來工作既夢想。是次籌款只會涵蓋機票與住宿費用,旅行雜費等其他支出本人將全權負責。多出的捐款將會捐出矛Worldwide Veterinary Services用以支援更多醫療物資與手術工具,詳細支出定必將於稍後通知捐獻者。捐獻多少無拘,只希望大家無論以任何方式也多多支持。:) 

A published article from the Australian Veterinary Journal by my senior, Steph - about her similar experience in Chiang Mai, Thailand last year - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZRfjt-pVz6Lx3fl4DcVbqJlEkzJQBt9M/view?usp=sharing

Hi Everyone, I am very pleased to announce that I was being elected to go to Ooty, India with 9 other veterinary students by our very own Vet School - Murdoch University, Western Australia in January next year as a voluntary team to execute the spay-and-neuter program for the local stray animals.
Rabies has been a very prominent disease in India, Thailand, Indonesia and other Southeastern Asian countries, it is therefore essential for us veterinary personnels to help eliminate the risk of outbreaks in conjunction with the human health sector.
Given my past experiences working with dogs and cats, horses, wildlife and other domestic animals, I have developed a genuine interest and knowledge across all species and my surgical skills have been constantly maturing and sharpening throughout this year. With no doubt, I have a strong faith that this is now the best time for me to step up and join the international communities working with real world problems.
Helping out in rural communities has been one of my dreams in becoming a veterinarian. Undoubtedly there are potential dangers and health hazards, but over the years veterinary volunteers had been proven safe in the area and the invaluable experiences outweighed every worry. We will remain professional and conscientious throughout the trip, not only taking care of the animals but also each other during the trip.
I would really appreciate if you can show me your support by helping with raising the sum of money that I will be supporting myself in terms of flight tickets and accomodation. Breakdown of expenses will be shown in the near future and any donations in excess will be offered to the Worldwide Veterinary Services for purchase of more advanced surgical equipment for the sake of the better recovery of the animals. This trip is not only about my personal development, more importantly the main purpose of why I decided to put this out is about getting your engagement and raising people's awareness regarding some of the world health problems. This is definitely neither the only One Health problem that we are currently facing nor me myself having the responsibility to solve these problems. With all your support and encouragment that I will be having, I will spare no effort in return to help every single animal or person in need on behalf of my surveillance and executing team. Any form of support and donations are absolutely welcomed, as every dollar or act means so much to me. Thank you in advance.
