  1. I stayed in Theresah’s home in Senya Beraku for 6 weeks whilst doing some Medical volunteering. Her family were very friendly and welcoming and I felt comfortable and at ease on arrival. Her house is nice and clean and it is in the ideal location – a short walk away from shops as well as the health centre where Theresah works and where I volunteered. Senya Beraku is a lovely village where I felt very safe, the locals are all friendly and helpful and I felt very comfortable to go out and explore on my own whenever I wanted.

    The Medical volunteering itself was eye opening and interesting, Theresah also helped us set up a malaria outreach programme which us volunteers had fundraised for.
    Theresah is a motivating character, she is independent and has a lot of good ideas. She is sociable and easy to talk to, and was always available to help us when we needed it.

    Overall my volunteering experience was better than expected and I have fond memories of my time in Ghana.

    All the best,

    Aneesah
