Supporting Emma Thomas and her work with Open Heart International
Arcadium HQ is proud to support our client Emma Thomas, a cardiothoracic scrub nurse at the Prince Charles Hospital, as she travels to Tanzania in November, volunteering with Open Heart International.
Over 7 days, Emma will work with an expert team of health professionals, providing education and training to the local doctors and nurses and working with them to perform vital surgery to repair heart defects in both paediatric and adult patients.
Their goal, above all, is to educate the local team of health professionals, assisting them to do the work so they can confidently operate on the thousands of cases in the area in the future and start to meet the local needs on their own.
The funds we donated will directly support project costs including the supplies, travel expenses and equipment needed to undertake this important work. We are thrilled to support Emma as she uses her time and skills to make a difference.
To date Emma has raised just over $1,000 of her $3,000 target. To join us in supporting her, please visit https://ohi2017.gofundraise.com.au/page/EmmaThomas3
