UL GIVE is a charity organization run by UL Graduate Entry Medical Students that fundraises for hospitals in Tanzania and directs money raised at cost effective projects that improve the quality of health and medical care for local residents. Each academic year, UL GIVE raises money that will be split to fund projects at three hospitals. A strong effort is being made to fund public health initiatives that will benefit the largest number of people for the amount of money spent. Continued funding is provided year after year to maintain the investments of previous years. UL medical students spend two to three weeks completing medical electives alongside staff in these same hospitals. This provides UL students excellent exposure to medical conditions infrequently seen in Ireland, and allows GIVE to determine which projects should be funded by the funds raised. All the money raised by the charity goes directly to the hospitals while the medical students that travel pay their own costs.
