Thanks to everyone who donated and all the businesses who contributed to the raffle. £875 was raised! I travel to India on 16 November so will keep you updated!
Exciting times! I’m going to volunteer in India doing acupuncture in November and I need your help!
I’ve lived in Crouch End for 27 years! I love it here and love being part of the community so I hope you’ll help me! I’m a local acupuncturist and tuina medical massage practitioner and very passionate about improving people’s health with Chinese medicine. I work from the Haelan Centre and have my own home clinic in Crouch End.
World Medicine is a registered UK charity providing acupuncture to people around the world suffering the effects of trauma, disaster and poverty. I’ve travelled to India many times and it is one of the most fascinating and challenging places in the world. Healthcare in rural India is not available to all so I want to take this opportunity to volunteer for World Medicine and provide acupuncture to those who can’t access it, because of circumstance and/or poverty.
I’m running a fantastic fundraising raffle through Justgiving to enable me to join five other acupuncturists volunteering for two weeks at a multi bed acupuncture clinic in rural Gujarat. Last year they performed 750 treatment and made a big difference to the health of the local community. Here’s a link to the charity with information about the trip:
I need to raise £850.00 – this covers flight and charity costs . You can donate in £5 increments through Justgiving – each fiver is worth one raffle ticket. The more you donate, the more chance you have to win a prize. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be sent your raffle ticket by email.
