About the country: Ghana is in West Africa and has a safe and stable democracy. This former British colony is sometimes labelled “Africa for beginners”. There is a rich culture, vibrant colorful markets, diverse wildlife, beautiful beaches and very friendly locals.
About the clinic: Our program is based in the Central Region of Ghana. Medical providers aim to improve health and educational opportunities for the less privileged children in the Buduburam community. The clinic is severely undersized and always packed with patients. It is a government clinic. The hospital is made up of an emergency room, triaged waiting rooms, a general care facility, an ear, nose, and throat center, a birth center, a mental health facility, and a dentist office. The Kasoa clinic is perfect for medical volunteers that are extremely efficient and thrive in high-intensity environments.
ABV Programs Include: Homestay accommodations, 3 meals per day, airport transfers on arrival/departure in Accra, cultural activities and optional tours available.
