“My mum asked me if I wanted to go after spotting a newspaper advert asking for volunteers to help build a school. I got stuck in and I loved it.”
The equipment from Benenden Hospital will help to establish a medical centre there in November. We would expect the cost of shipping the container to be around £1,900.

“I cleaned and dressed the wound for him every day and by the time I left it was completely better. ”
