Hello! This summer I have been given the opportunity to travel to Nansana, Uganda with UCD Volunteers Overseas Charity to carry out a Physiotherapy Placement. I will be travelling with four other physiotherapy students and a physiotherapy tutor along with fourteen other general volunteers and leaders. We will be working in partnership with an Irish charity organisation called Nurture Africa. The four weeks we will spend in Nansana will be filled providing therapy to children with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy and working with their parents to educate them and provide support for them to carry out the necessary therapy at home. Each volunteer is asked to raise a minimum of €1400 which will go directly to the project to provide resourses such as physiotherapy equipment (wheelchairs, prostheses, walking aids, specailised seating etc), educational resources, as well as resources for the camp with the aim of these resources being maintained for the coming years. Any donations will be greatly appreciated no matter how small and will make a huge difference to the project. Thank you so much for your help. Lucy
