My Travel Story

I am currently in my third and final year of my Children's Nursing degree (eek!) and am travelling out to Bali for my 4 week elective placement to volunteer with helping the local community through health promotion in June/July 2017. 

Above is a vlog of two people who went to Bali with the same company (Go Eco), however they did a different project to me. It gives you a good idea of the sort of thing I will be doing out there and the children I will be helping. I will also spend 30 hours+ travelling to get there, which is a scary thought as I am doing this all by myself (only travelled by myself on a plane once, and my Gran met me at the other end!!)... so this will be a completely new experience for me!

The project I will be volunteering in is the 'Medical Project':
Lack of medical care and healthcare resources is a significant problem for the Ubud community. This project encourages and inspires local children to care more about their personal health and hygiene. This could include teaching them how to brush their teeth, wash their hands as well as how to clean their body and clothes. You will help improve the healthcare situation by running informational health sessions as well as showing them ways they can live healthier lives. 

However, as you can imagine, being a student money is tight! I would highly appreciate any donations towards this amazing experience.

It will be a challenge and the biggest adventure I have ever been on, but I am keen to get stuck in and make a difference to the people of Bali, who do not have the luxuries that we do. 

Thank you for your support xo
