My Travel Story

by: Megan Richardson Start Date: Jan 12, 2018 - End Date: May 11, 2018
In the summer of 2018, I will be joining SLV in Sri Lanka for 5 weeks on a mental health placement. 

SLV is a voluntary organisation which runs various projects to help local communities around the world. During my time in Sri Lanka I will be working alongside other volunteers in multiple institutions such as psychiatric wards, mental health care facilities and special needs facilities with individuals who suffer from mental health problems. I will also be running activities for these patients using sensory and creative therapy and teaching English in the community.

This mental health placement is voluntary and unpaid, at a cost. Therefore I’m asking friends, family or anyone who holds mental health close to their heart to help me sponsor my trip so I can go out and make a difference in Sri Lanka! 
Any donations would be massively appreciated :)
