In January of 2014, I am aiming to travel for three weeks with a group of Griffith University students to volunteer my nursing skills and experience in the Seuang River region, north of Luang Prabang in Laos.

During this placement, the team and I will be travelling between local villages and working on community healthcare projects in central local health districts and community clinics along the Seuang river valley. Some of our duties will include:
- providing basic healthcare and check-ups
- outreach nursing
- supporting rural community clinics
- paediatric and maternity nursing care and education
- sexual health education
- hygiene promotion and education

Whilst travelling, the team and I will be accompanied by Lao translators and university nursing supervisors which will assist us in gaining an understanding and insight into the differences between the Australian and Laos health systems.

Most of the population within this region in Laos are unable to gain access to, or do not have enough money to visit clinics or hospitals to obtain much needed healthcare - so they need our help!

Antipodeans Abroad has been managing placements to Laos for four years now with great success!

This placement will cost $5,450, not including vaccinations or visas – so your help will be greatly appreciated! The money will go towards things like medicines for the clinics, equipment and medical supplies, transport, meals, international flights and taxes, basic home-stay accommodation in a local village, community project research and set up and university supervision.

Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions regarding my trip: brookegrayson92@gmail.com

Thanks everyone for your contribution and support towards a worthy cause!
