Graduation Trip- Volunteer Nursing Overseas
Organized by: Shannyn McCauley
EVENT DATE Sep 14, 2015
This page was set up so family and friends could donate to the 3 week trip I am taking after I graduate nursing school and pass my boards!
I will be providing nursing care at clinic in Ghana, located in western Africa. We will be giving vaccinations, treating malaria, and educating on how to prevent transmission of HIV. The clinic also runs an orphanage. If you are interested in doing items to the children rather then money, please contact me :)
Rural Africa has some of the worst health statistics in the world and only action can create change! There is only 1 doctor and 9 nurses per 10,000 people. 1 in 48 women will die in childbirth and 7% of the population is infected with HIV.
I look foreword to traveling abroad and using my new skills to help others.
Thank you very much for your donations!
