Bridget Owen has lived in the Millennium Village since the early days and served for several years on the committee of the residents association. She is going to Uganda in a month’s time to do voluntary work among children and women with HIV – and is asking for the help of local people (and others)
“To those who don’t know me my name is Bridget Owen, I am the Haringey CCG Deputy Designated Nurse for Safeguarding Children that is part of the Quality and Integrated Governance Directorate. I have worked in Haringey for 4 1/2 years – first with the PCT, then NCL and now the CCG with Karen Baggaley as a constant supportive manager.
After 32 years in the NHS I have decided to take most of my annual leave to be a volunteer nurse for a charity ‘Nurture Africa’ based in central Uganda, focusing on providing HIV/AIDS screening and treatment for children and adults on a 5 week placement 26th June – 2nd August 2014. There is a fund raising element to the charity which funds their health centre and school sponsorship programme and promotes awareness of the HIV crisis there and so I need to raise £3,000.”
So she needs to raise funds before she goes and is looking for support from Greenwich people.
