The time I spent in Ghana with Blue Med Africa was unforgettable to say the least. Richard and the rest of the staff are extremely friendly, and I saw a dedication to their community in them that is admirable, inspiring, and hard to come by. As a medical student, Blue Med Africa truly offered each part of an international trip that I was hoping for - time in the hospital, community outreach, and travel on the weekends! Richard and his team worked with each student to tailor the program to what he/she was really interested in and always kept us busy, whether it was bandaging wounds at the cured lepers' village, playing with the children at the orphanage, or shadowing in the hospital - we were always doing something and going somewhere! The weekend trips were another highlight as we were able to experience all different parts of the country, from a safari in Mole in the North, to Ada-Foah beach in the South. I would recommend volunteering with Blue Med for any person looking to experience Ghana in a truly Ghanian perspective, not as a tourist, but as a traveler. I will be back one day without a doubt!
