Its All Started When We Realized That Most of the Disease Conditions and complications Reported to Local Hospitals were from the most Deprived Communities. Many could not go to the Hospital not Because of the Distance from the nearest Hospital, but could not afford to pay for their healthcare. In view of these challenges, we deemed it necessary to come together to create a change through health education and medical outreaches to these deprived communities. We did this to provide others the opportunity, without cost, to be informed, gain access to healthcare services and stay healthy thereby reducing mortality and morbidity among the poor in our society.

Deborah Kingston

University of Southampton, England
I arrived in Ghana in September 2011- after hearing about BLUE-MED and the great work they do the year before. I was apprehensive about going with a small organization at first, but I could not have been more wrong! From the start Richard and this team were great- from answering emails quickly (no matter how silly my enquiry seemed) to making me feel part of the BLUE-MED family while I was there. Nothing was too much for them, they made me feel safe and welcome throughout.

Auburn University
Only 17 years old and I had no idea what was in store for me as I made my way to Ho, Ghana to work with Blue Med Africa. What I found there was God fearing, world loving people who were looking to make a difference in their community. The mornings were spent in the local hospital attending to patients, learning about the Ghanaian medical system, and sitting in on multiple surgeries. Each afternoon held a new adventure. We raised funds in school back in the States to build a washroom for a children's school in Ho.

I spent 3 months with Blue-Med Africa between college and graduate school in 2011. During my stay I was able to volunteer at the local hospital, veterinary clinic, orphanage and school. These diverse experiences allowed me to see so many facets of Ghanian life and meet many amazing people. I found my stay to be an insightful and candid learning experience. While impelled by the idea to make a difference, after three months I was humbled after witnessing how a lack of basic care can cause suffering, but also the resiliency and kindness shown by Ghanians.

I spent 5 weeks in Ghana with Blue-Med Africa during the summer of 2013. My experience as a medical volunteer in Ghana was one of the best I’ve ever had, and I have to thank Blue-Med for that. From the very first day, we were treated with such hospitality and kindness and immediately felt comfortable in our new environment. As volunteers, we spent the majority of our time in the Ho Municipal Hospital, moving from one ward to the next and assisting the doctors and nurses.

Blue-Med Africa hosted me during autumn of 2011 following the completion of my undergraduate degree. I looked at many global health volunteer opportunities which might allow me to utilize my skill set in biomedical sciences and provide me experience serving the unique healthcare needs of an underserved population. I chose Blue-Med Africa, a local NGO in Ghana’s Ho Region, because of the range of partnerships they have made with local healthcare and social service agencies offering a diverse range of opportunities to their incoming volunteers

I joined the Blue-Med team for a week of volunteering in Ho, Ghana during the summer of 2010. As a frequent international traveler and volunteer, I can say this was among the best experiences I've ever had. Richard and his team are well connected, highly organized and very committed to the community. The volunteer house is safe and well maintained, and provides lots of time for group meals and socialization. Most importantly, the volunteer experiences were very well organized, and we were able to provide services for which the community was truly in need.

During my time with Blue-Med Africa, I experienced more of Ghana than I ever thought possible. I didn’t quite know what I was getting into when I signed up for the trip, but my time and experiences there greatly exceeded my expectations. A typical week included volunteering and shadowing at the local hospital, playing with children at an orphanage, cleaning the wounds and changing the bandages of cured leprosy victims, setting up community outreach clinics in remote villages, providing school health outreach, and weekend tours of the country and culture of Ghana.

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” – Luke 6:38 I volunteered with Blue-Med four years ago, but my experience in Ghana is one that still resonates with me today. I went with my close friend Molly Claybrook who learned about Blue-Med while searching for volunteer programs with a focus in medical care and outreach.

The experience I had with Blue Med Africa was unlike any other. I came following my junior year of High School and was greeted by Richard and a wonderful and caring team. Immediately I was exposed to the gently and compassionate Ghanaian culture as I partook in local foods and experienced outdoor markets. I chose Blue Med due to its mission and structure. It was unique from other NGOs as it was directly based in Ghana and took a sustainable approach to its work.
