Hello lovely friends and family! This year I have been lucky enough to be chosen as part of a team of volunteers to travel to Kisiizi Hospital in Uganda, where we will spend four weeks next summer. I will be completing a physiotherapy placement over the four weeks, working alongside four other physiotherapy students, to provide additional services to the hospital and patients in the surrounding community. We will also be running a cerebal palsy camp in which we will aim to provide sustainable treatments for the children and help educate their parents and families on how best to manage their child's condition. In order to participate in the UCDVO projects, each volunteer is asked to raise €2600. These funds are needed to support us volunteers in providing additional physiotherapy services as well as covering the costs of project resources such as the rehabilitation camp, educational resources, refurbishment and physiotherapy equipment. I'd really appreciate any donation at all that you can give, no matter how small! Every cent will be put to great use on the project. Thanks a million! Eimear :)
