Joshua and David pack their bags for Tanzania

Physiotherapy students Joshua McKim and David Bosker will have an opportunity to see Bond’s fundraising efforts in action when they travel to Tanzania this month for a four-week clinical placement.

Our physio cohort hit the newspaper headlines in June when they held a barefoot bowls day at Kingscliff Beach Club, raising almost $4000 to help train physiotherapy students at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Tanzania.

The Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College provides training for doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and other health professionals.

Now Joshua and David will work alongside the College’s physiotherapy students at the medical centre.

“It costs $600 to educate a physiotherapist to Diploma level and $1000 to Bachelor level at the College,” said Joshua.

“The funds raised at our barefoot bowls day will help pay the costs for five physio students in Tanzania for a year.

“Thanks to Bond’s involvement, we not only get to help our African colleagues finance their studies, but we also benefit from the clinical experience we’ll gain by working in such a different situation.”

Another thing Joshua and David have in common is that they are both former students of Green Point Christian College on the NSW Central Coast.

Joshua graduated in 2002 and went on to complete a Bachelor of Applied Science, majoring in Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Sydney, taking time out to work as a ski instructor in Canada and travel through Europe.
