Call for UK nurses to volunteer in Ghana this November

VOLUNTEERS: Nurses will travel to Ghana to volunteer in hospitals with the GUBA Foundation

A COHORT of nurses will travel to Ghana to volunteer in hospitals this November with the GUBA Foundation.
The two-week programme inspired by the Year of Return, a year-long marketing campaign aimed at encouraging the diaspora to travel to Ghana launched by president Nana Akufo-Addo.

From its inception, the GUBA Foundation has consistently engaged in a variety of charitable ventures aimed at supporting the Ghanaian population. The foundation has donated uniforms and various hospital equipment, including an incubator, to hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Ghana to help enhance the standards of care.

Dentaa Amoateng, founder of GUBA Enterprise and the GUBA Foundation, said: “As part of Ghana’s Year of Return, this program is a great idea for our nurses here in the UK to get working experience in Ghana and to discover potential working opportunities to tap into.

"By offering this opportunity, we at the GUBA Foundation are keen to engage with nurses who want to spend some time in Ghanaian hospitals and share the skills they have learned in the UK. We hope this volunteering program creates an atmosphere where there can be an exchange of knowledge between Ghanaian nurses and UK nurses and (in the spirit of the Year of Return) create a platform where some nurses will want to return to Ghana to make a longer-term working contribution!”

Nurses resident in the UK who partake in the volunteering programme will have the opportunity to give back to Ghana by sharing their skills with communities in the country.

Serlom Buatsi, a 27-year-old breast specialist nurse, volunteered in Ghana with the GUBA Foundation in 2018. Buatsi said: “Last year the GUBA Foundation arranged for me to volunteer as a nurse in Ghana. It has been one of the best experiences, a real eye-opener and I’ve learnt so much. It was also a very rewarding feeling that I was able to give back. I definitely want to go again this year.”

Applicants interested in securing a place on this the November 2019 two-week volunteering trip to Ghana, must send a CV detailing their nursing history and a note stating why they want to join the programme to the GUBA Foundation team at info@gubafoundation.org.
