Two students, one dream! We will be in a 6-week internship in Hospital das Neves, in São Tomé e Príncipe. With us, we’ll take medical material and medicines. For that purpose, we’re counting on everybody’s support. Help us to Help São Tomé e Príncipe.
We are two 4th year med students at University of Minho in Portugal. On an academic context, we are planning an internship as volunteers at Hospital das Neves in São Tomé and Principe, for a duration of about 5 to 6 weeks, beginning in July of the current year.
This entirely individual project is the result of a dream of two 21-year-old students. Since then, our main goals have been to work towards a bigger cause. We aim to take some of the knowledge we acquired with us and put it into practice while using it to help and teach others to do the same. We dream about the development of Healthcare among the population of the region of Lembá. But we also dream about learning… We want to learn as much as possible and in the best possible way.
As this project advanced, we were able to ensure a container to carry the material we could get. Since then, we started to fundraise hospital and medical material, as well as medication, in an attempt to improve the work conditions of the hospital and health centers in the region.
We aim to develop and promote the health of the population, intervene in more efficient and assertive ways in treatment and healthcare of the local citizens.
Currently, we are counting with some hospital material, but we want to take as much as possible.
Therefore, we are asking for your contribution to fundraise 500€, that will be used entirely to purchase medical equipment (such as blood pressure devices) and medication that we lack and to shipping expenses.
With you support, we can do even more, and we can make a real difference. Help us help São Tomé and Principe. Even 1€ can make difference, creating hundreds of smiles!
