Midwifery in Nepal

Midwifery in Nepal

I will be travelling to Nepal for 5 weeks in April 2013. I will be going with a company called 'Work the World' who organise healthcare placements abroad, and will be working within hospitals and the community in Nepal. I will be spending 4 weeks in Pokhara where I will stay in a Work the World house, and attending placements at a local hospital. My final week will be spent in a small rural village in the mountains, where I will live with a local family and be placed within a health care post in the community (If I'm lucky enough I may even see a home birth). This is something which will develop my skills both in relation to midwifery and as a person. I am interested in midwifery practice in developing countries, and the structure of health care. Nepal have an extremely high maternal mortality rate due to poor access to healthcare, and have recently introduced a program called 'Safer Motherhood' which provides free healthcare to pregnant women. I am interested to see how this relates to our free healthcare system, and hopefully bring back some new skills that I can use in the future. I need your help to make this dream come true, any suggestions for fundraising, and funding would be greatly recieved. Any donations, no matter how small would also be extremely helpful. If I raise suffient funds I would also like to take over some resources to give to the hospitals and locals which will hopefully go a little way towards improving healthcare within Nepal.I believe this adventure will help me to develop as a person, and further my career. It is also a great way to give my time to a developing country. Please help me achieve this!My aim is to raise £3000 in total, however some of this I hope to save myself, and some funding from organisations and grants. I would however appreciate any contributions toward equipment etc.. and if possible towards the experience. x
