An Aberdeen student is set to travel thousands of miles to carry out humanitarian work.
Sarah-Jane Reilly of Robert Gordon University (RGU) will travel more than 5,000 miles to Malawi to work with communities in the small African nation, where lack of medical care can be fatal.
The nutrition student, 20, is now hoping to raise £1,500 for the charity First Aid Africa.
She will take a break from studying at RGU to join the charity and teach life-saving first aid skills in schools and orphanages.
Sarah-Jane said: “I wanted to give something back, it’s about giving a skill to people rather than just money.
“They have almost no access to healthcare in some communities in Malawi, and even minor injuries can be fatal.
“It will be a great experience teaching first aid out there, and it’s a skill that can be passed on, and keep saving lives.”
The World Health Organisation has shown that more deaths occur through injuries than from HIV, Malaria and Tuberculosis.
Sarah-Jane has previously volunteered to help the sick in Lourdes, and the homeless for Aberdeen Cyrenians.
She now wants to help those in Malawi who have no medical care, passing on skills in schools, orphanages and other community spaces.
Sarah-Jane is due to fly travel on June 19 to work with First Aid Africa.
The charity offer life-saving training to partners in sub-Saharan Africa.
