volunteer opportunities in Africa with Sem Fronteiras (Elghana)Make a difference in the lives of people, help local health professionals save lives, The number of health workers and doctors have been growing in our project countries, so is the population and worst of it, the gap between the rich and the poor people and communities. most of the medical professionals are concentrated in the cities with a serious need at the rural facilities where the need also is high due to the living and labor conditions of the people. High maternal and child mortality rates, malaria, water born diseases, malnutrition, heart problems and worms are the prominent problems. In many of these communities, health facilities are run by a nurse-midwife who also provide family planning services and education as well. Clinics are organized for new mothers, expecting mothers, and different groups of persons with common ailments or conditions. As a doctor, or a nurse/midwife, you can lend a helping hand here where you are needed most.

Student nurses, Medical students, and high school students aspiring to pursue health related studies are accepted into the program where you can help free the hands of the qualified professionals by taking on some responsibilities like taking the vitals (blood pressure, temperature, pulse, weight) of a patient and recording into the history card so the professionals can attend quickly to the patient, creating an opportunity for many to be served. You can help at the wards, monitoring patients in recovery.

In addition to helping, you have the opportunity to observe, learn and help in other activities like deliveries and surgeries.

Medical students and student nurses get more duties, learning and picking some of the routines from the professionals.

As a professional doctor or nurse/midwife, this experience will sharpen your skills and knowledge in tropical diseases/medicine and dealing with limited skilled workers and equipment, a case which will come in handy during emergencies.

Immunizations and health education during community outreach will be a section that all who volunteer get involved in.

Your involvement help us;

For trained professionals, we need you to help out in all our project countries. For Student nurses and medical students, We need you in Ghana and in Kenya. For high school students looking to help and pick up skills and experience, we offer the placements in Ghana only.
