Day 1
Kotoka International Airport (ACC) is the airport you will fly to and it is located in Accra, Ghana. After you have landed in Accra its takes about an hour to get your passport stamp by the immigration and pick up your luggage from the conveyor belt, clear customs and meet Richard and the rest of the staffs outside with your names written on an A4 sheet to your view at the arrivals.

We encourage every volunteer to have our contact number, +233243380168, on his or her phone and to give us a call in case of any unexpected situations. You may not find your bags/ luggage after arrival due to layovers or flight change. If you do not find your luggage within an hour after your arrival time, you should come and talk to our staff member, who is waiting to assist you. In the case that you arrive and our staff member is not available, please wait for us in the visitors lounge to be picked up or give our office a call. Do inform us of any changes to your flight schedule, so that you never miss us at the airport.

After our staffs have welcomed you at the airport we take you to the hotel to spend your first night if you arrive at night. The hotel is 10 minutes’ drive from the airport. We will take the team to a restaurant to have dinner and get back to the hotel.

Date 2
Volunteers would be transported by the Blue-Med Van to Ho after breakfast which is our regional base. The staffs would show volunteers their beds, washroom, bath room, kitchen, access to 24/7 wifi and etc at the blue med apartment/hostel.
