Student midwives to work in Ugandan hospital for two weeks
FIVE student midwives hope to make a difference by working in a Ugandan hospital for two weeks.
The students practising at Grimsby's Diana Princess of Wales Hospital have been chosen to visit Mbarara Hospital, as part of their third-year placement with Hull University.
The nervous ladies need all the help they can get with raising funds, as it costs £1,100 each.
Cara Mumby said: "We will fly out on May 27 and I am really nervous about how different the hospital will be.
"It will be a really good experience to practise in Uganda and see how different it will be by going back to basics.
"I am sure when we come back from the trip we will be changed women with a lot more experiences under our belt."
Emma Jepson, Sadie Elliot, Jackie Woodhouse and Rebecca Howard will also be joining Cara on the trip, which is sure to be a huge learning curve.
Julie Green, midwife at Grimsby maternity unit and lecturer at Hull University, has been to the Ugandan hospital twice.
"It will give the girls a different perception of their work here," she said.
"They hardly have a health service over there which makes you realise how important the NHS is to us.
"There is hardly any medication there which means women will be in pain."
