Zanele Denaro of Lowell Street is president of Nursing Students Without Borders at UMass Lowell. She will be one of ten nursing students and one faculty advisor traveling to Ghana, Africa, in January, as health-care volunteers.

Their mission is to promote health empowerment through education, build networks to access health-care resources and distribute material donations to populations in need, while expanding the perspective of the nursing students and collaborating with community members. They will spend 12 days providing nursing care in the local clinics, villages and an orphanage. In addition, they will be providing nursing education to area nurses who have no access to educational resources.

They are asking for financial support to subsidize the cost of this nursing mission. Donations will help provide the village of Kpando and other rural, impoverished villages with first-aid supplies, vitamins, nutritional supplements and clothing, as well as defray the high cost of shipping these items to Ghana. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated and can be sent to Nursing Students Without Borders, University of Massachusetts Lowell, 3 Solmont Way, Lowell, MA 01854 or our website at
