Medical care in developing countries is often desperately limited due to problems of limited knowledge, under funding, and oversubscription. Hospitals and clinics throughout these countries can be severely under resourced and are continually open to extra support. This story is true of Ghana, and we have developed a close relationship with a number of hospitals and clinics in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, to provide opportunities for improvements to the quality and delivery of local healthcare services.
We welcome you, with or without previous medical experience, since you will not be asked to undertake any work that requires formal medical training. Much of your role will be in a support capacity, working alongside professional medical staff in Ghana. You are likely to spend much of your time shadowing the local staff in their day-to-day work, learning how they manage and interact with patients. At other times you will be invited to offer a more hands-on role to the medical care being delivered, provided you are capable in that role.
Please be advised that the daily transportation costs to and from your program are not included and must therefore be paid by yourself throughout the course of your stay. Those costs may range from 2 - 3 Euros per day.
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
