Providing sustainable international aid

St George’s Global Brigades society was set up by first-year Paramedic Science student, Matt Glendenning, earlier this year and he has been actively fundraising for an upcoming trip to Africa ever since. The society is a branch of Global Brigades, the largest student-led movement for global health.

Below, Matt talks about what motivated him to set up the St George’s branch of Global Bridages, and explains why he and his fellow students are planning to work in Ghana this summer. Why did you get involved with Global Brigades?
