Freya's Project Borneo July 2017

I will be carrying out a community project in a rural area of Borneo where the majority of people are living below the poverty line and don’t have access to proper housing, education facilities, medical treatment or even reliable clean drinking water.

I’ve left it really late to tell you all about this even though I’ve been planning it for nearly 2 years. The parish community was very generous in helping me fund my project in Ghana in 2014 where I worked in a small village community, I've planned to do something similar in Borneo in July this year before results day, and if all goes well with those results starting at Medical School in September!

I will be carrying out a community project in a rural area of Borneo where the majority of people are living below the poverty line and don’t have access to proper housing, education facilities, medical treatment or even reliable clean drinking water.

I do need to raise funds and I could do with as much help as possible. I hate to ask but unfortunately Cake sales and Bag Packs at Tesco just haven’t raised enough. You can read more about the project on my fundraising site www.gofundme.com/freya-borneo2107 which I will try to keep up-to-dated over the next few weeks.

The funds will go towards expedition costs and buying the resources needed to carry out the community work whilst I am out there. If there are any surplus funds I will donate them to Mary’s Meals and Parish funds.

Thank you so much for reading this and any contribution will be very much appreciated.

God Bless, Freya Menzies
