Story

Hey friends :) I have been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to be part of the UCD VO team for the coming year. I will be travelling to Vijayawada, South India in June 2018 to complete a physiotherapy placement along with 4 other students. We spend 4 weeks working  with the international NGO ‘Care and Share’. This NGO runs two ‘Children’s Villages’ for over one thousand children who have been orphaned/abandoned as a result of HIV/Aids and extreme poverty. We will be providing much needed intervention for children with conditions such as cerebral palsy, polio and developmental delays.  We will also be engaging in community outreach programmes working with children who have never had any diagnosis/intervention and their families to help improve their quality of life. In order to travel we must raise €1,400 which will go directly to the project in order to provide the children with physiotherapy equipment such as wheelchairs and splints, and other resources to help them continue progressing after we leave.  This does not include any personal costs including travel, accomodation and vaccinations as I intend to cover my own expenses myself. Any donation, big or small, would be a huge help and I can guarantee it will be put to good use. Thanks in advance. Much love, Ró xx
