Story

Hello everyone! As some of you may know I volunteered as part of UCD volunteer overseas in Kisiizi Hospital, Uganda in July 2018. This year, I am fortunate enough to be able to return to Kisiizi but this time as a Student Leader with a team of physiotherapy, medical, nursing, food science and dietetic students for four weeks. During this time we will work on a variety of different projects both in the hospital and with the community. We will run a cerebral palsy camp in which we will provide sustainable treatment for the children and help educate their families on how best to manage their child's condition and maximise their quality of life. We will screen all children attending this camp for malnutrition as manage this as appropriate. We will also run nutritional work shops in both the hospital and community and assist in the day to day running of the hospital where ever we can.  We are hoping to carry out some sustainable projects on the mental heath ward in the hospital. Each volunteer is asked to raise €1200, which goes directly toward the running of the cerebral palsy camp, equipment for the children, medication that the children may need and educational resources for the hospital. I would greatly appreciapte any donation towards the project, big or small. I can assure you that every penny goes a long way and is hugely appreciated. We are also running a comedy event in the Laughter Lounge as a fundraiser on Thursday 30th of January 2020 (doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8:30pm) with 4 great comedians and a late-night bar with DJ. Tickets are €25 and all proceeds go towards the project. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you - Victoria
