In September 2018 I began a years sabbatical to volunteer as a physiotherapist overseas.
My three projects:
- Coordinating medical aid and running physiotherapy clinics for refugees in Thessaloniki, Greece.
- Working as a physiotherapist in a hospital and providing health education and screening to children at a school in Uganda.
- Working alongside physiotherapists in Madagascar to improve clinical skills, rehabilitation services and Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) working.
I will use this blog to share the incredible work I will be doing and some amazing stories along the way.
All of the work I am doing is completely voluntary and I hope anyone reading this finds it is a worthy cause to donate to. I’ve attached lots of links to my just giving page throughout and all of the money raised will go directly to financing my projects, with any additional amount being distributed equally between the causes.
Dubbed by my friends as a ‘diability’ and ‘Bridget Jones’, I have been known to have the occasional mishap… so heading into the somewhat unknown I’m sure I’ll encounter a few obstacles to keep it entertaining!
For more information on my work check out me myself and volunteering or my latest blog posts. Any donations are hugely appreciated and will help me carry out this amazing work! I cannot wait to share my experiences with you 🙂
