I am hoping to go to India for two weeks in Summer 2014 with Projects Abroad. I would love to take part in their Two Week Special for ages 16-19, where I wish to be part of their Medicine and Healthcare course. I hope to gain experience in Medicine helping out in the hospital or clinic.

The projects abroad base in India is in Madurai in the South of the country.

During my stay there, I will also have the chance to explore and travel to many towns which are filled with fantastical culture, worlds away from life in England.

I’m especially interested in the Medical course as it has a rotation across a number of different departments. With the help of supervisors I will be able to oversee and learn various procedures involving work in a leprosy clinic and also experiencing 5,000 year old traditional Ayurvedic medical treatments. I will be fortunate enough to shadow local medical staff and assist with diagnosis and treatments of conditions that never develop beyond the primary stages in the west.

I believe this trip will enhance my future prospects and aspirations of doing medicine at university as I will learn to become more independent and self-confident. It will also help me broaden my world view and create a lifelong impression of other societies through connections with people I meet in India.

From now until summer, I will be organising several fundraising events, including a sponsored run and sponsored bake sale to raise money for this effort.

I would be truly humbled if you were to sponsor me, with the promise that I will donate much needed money to medical supplies and equipment vital to the town in which I visit.

Thank you

Lizze Reid
