Each of us is just passing in this world. No matter how much wealth we accumulate, in time we will just leave all them behind. Well, of course we can leave them to our kids so that they will fare better but the bottom line is, nothing in this world that can make us last. In fact, even if you are that religious and might be endowed with God’s grace, still there is a good chance you still die in this lifetime and might just await for the judgement day. This is why, because of this fact, there are a number of people who are in search for their meaning and some of them end up in volunteering to help others who are less privileged.
Are you planning the same thing? If so, volunteering in Ghana in health care might be a good idea. You will not only learn firsthand some of the things doctors do in a busy hospital, you will also be able to help a lot of people. Yes, if you are indeed planning to Volunteer Abroad, do it in Ghana for you will really be useful there.
If you will do the volunteering on your own, these tips below might of great help:
- First thing to do is learn about the subject of your volunteer service. Like for example if you will volunteer inn a healthcare facility, then try to grasp as much as possible anything you can about this subject. Even if you are not yet a doctor or a certified nurse, you can still be effective in so many ways. Just try to learn how to become an effective assistant then as for sure, in a busy hospital like in Ghana, extra hands will be greatly appreciated. You will still matter a lot.
- You might be too excited to do something relevant and to visit a new place, but first, you must learn about Ghana. Read some books and get yourself oriented with the life in this country. You must know what to expect like the weather, their currency, their ways of life and so on. This way, nothing will surprise you anymore and your bottom line in going there will just go smoothly.
- Ask the organization concerned about everything you want to ask. Don’t be afraid to spill out what’s on your mind especially that you will be going alone. After all, you will not go there for pleasure but for planning to do a good deed.
- Be humble. No matter how experienced or capable you are, you must always maintain a low profile. Note that you will be in a foreign country. You are not familiar with the people around you yet. They might not take arrogance lightly, thus it is better to be safe than sorry.
Deciding on volunteering is indeed a good idea. However, your bottom line should be helping others and other matters should just be secondary. Thus be sure to familiarize your supposed tasks.
