Elghana was very supportive during my stay

I loved the time I spent in Ghana. The people were so wonderful and friendly. I made many new friends through work and my host family. The clinic in Sepaase is a great place to work. I had the opportunity to assist and learn many medical procedures. I feel that it was a good environment for me, because I didn’t have any medical experience before coming to Ghana and the nurses there were fantastic teachers. Elghana was very supportive during my stay. They always checked on me to know how I was doing and feeling about almost everything. I was very glad that I had them there, being my first time in Ghana and I didn’t know anyone there. I quickly became very attached to my host family. My host mother was very caring and protective, which made my mom in the US feel reassured. I spent a lot of time with my host sister, who taught me Twi and basic chores such as hand washing and cooking. To incoming volunteers; Just to be open to new experiences, and to be understanding of the cultural differences between your home country and Ghana. Words of advice to Sem Fronteiras (aka Elghana); keep up the good work.
