Medical volunteers provide life-changing eye treatment for patients in Kenya

Access to proper healthcare is often limited or non-existent for most people living in the rural parts of Kenya. Though the government is striving to improve some medical facilities, many people living in impoverished communities continue to suffer from diseases that could easily have been prevented. For the people of impoverished communities such as Msambweni, there is scarce opportunity to receive medical treatment, meaning that even minor ailments can become chronic and debilitating. For the past 7 years, Camps International...

Ellie has raised nearly £4000 and still has a year to go!

Ellie has raised nearly £4000 and still has a year to go!

Ellie thought she had a big task of fundraising ahead of her, but she is 8 months in and has raised nearly £4000, only a small amount left to raise and still 12 months to go! When I first heard about the trip I was very excited and keen to go, but then my friends decided they werent going, so I was very undecided. I spoke to my cousin who had done something very similar in Nepal 5 years ago,...

Refreshments, selling logo space on a t-shirt and a Gin tasting evening

Refreshments, selling logo space on a t-shirt and even a Gin tasting evening - Alex has cast her fundraising net far and wide with a huge variety of fundraising ideas!  I was sceptical when I first heard about the expedition; not knowing what to expect, being away from home for a month and travelling to the unknown. However the more I researched into it, the more it became something I wanted to take part in. I questioned whether I was...

9 months of fundraising and over £2000 made!!

9 months of fundraising and over £2000 made!!

Shahrouz has looked around her for fundraising inspiration and has definately had some great success with his events.  He hasn't even completed a year of fundraising yet and has already raised over £2000! When I first heard about the expedition I thought that this was amazing. To be able to help people and to do it over in another country is something I probably will never get to do again. I was excited to be able to meet new people...

School get’s involved in group fundraising

This team are now abroad and stuck into their expedition, but they held a group fundraising event before they left, and are already looking towards their next expedition. On Friday 18 May, Hampton High ran a football tournament fundraiser for Camp Cambodia 2018. The event included 12 teams of students from years 9-12. The catch with this tournament was that all teams had to have a minimum of one staff member either playing for, or managing, the team. An auction...

Toby is over halfway to his fundraising target!

Toby is over halfway to his fundraising target!

Toby knows that his fundraising is taking some effort but is continuing to work really hard and is already over halfway there! Keep going Toby! The first time I heard about the trip I thought it would be a good experience to visit another part of the world where people aren't as privileged as we are. I thought it would be good to be able to help them in a practical way and it would be a rewarding experience. I...
