Feedback Volunteer Andrea Crane: Ghana, Orphanage and Wound Care Program Abroaderview.org

Feedback Volunteer Andrea Crane: Ghana, Orphanage and Wound Care Program Abroaderview.org | "#Volunteer Abroad Information: Volunteering, Airlines, Countries, Pictures, Cultures" | Scoop.it

Volunteer Name: Andrea Crane, Project Location: Kpando, Ghana, Program Dates: 1/22 – 1/29/14, Volunteered at: Orphanage and homes within community of Kpando

"Overall, I had a wonderful experience in Ghana. ABV handled everything and made me feel very safe and welcome in the Kpando. The host family was kind and welcoming, and truly enjoyed having us as their guests. The trip was enlightening in many ways and very fulfilling. I cannot wait to return and be with the beautiful people of Ghana again!

Use the packing list provided by ABV, it covers almost everything you need! A few things I would add: baby wipes, portable fans, and a small backpack. Also, consider bringing electrolyte replacements, such as Gatorade packs to mix with water, because the heat will dehydrate you very quickly! I would recommend going to the market in town on market days (every fourth day). It is a great place to buy delicious foods and unique souvenirs, and to experience the beautiful culture of Ghana. The market was one of my favorite places to visit! If you’re looking for a short trip, try traveling to the beautiful Wli Falls on the weekend. It was a 1-hour taxi ride away and made a great getaway. 

My favorite memory was on the first day that we arrived to do wound care for an elderly woman with a chronic wound. She was so thankful that we had come to help her, and her husband actually lifted his hands and praised God for our being there. They were so grateful! This very humbling and rewarding experience truly made me feel like I was making a difference in her life.
Also, the children of Ghana truly made an impact on heart. I have many wonderful memories of their smiles and giggles!

The accommodation was good.  Location was convenient as it was very close to the kindergarten and the Spanish teacher's house.  The meals were healthy and gave us a good representation of Peruvian food.  Host family were very very nice.  They were very accommodating and shared everything with us without any hesitation.  Also, we appreciate their patience with us especially when we are having a hard time understanding Spanish.  We're very thankful to Maria and her family for welcoming us in their home. https://www.abroaderview.org

Rebecca Tanner Volunteer in Ghana, Africa Orphanage Program Abroaderview.org

Rebecca Tanner Volunteer in Ghana, Africa Orphanage Program Abroaderview.org | "#Volunteer Abroad Information: Volunteering, Airlines, Countries, Pictures, Cultures" | Scoop.it

What was your favorite memory of this trip?
I have so many! I met many other volunteers who were in the same area as me, and we would go out and take trips together. We went to Kokrobite Beach for a weekend, and it was so beautiful. White sand, beautiful ocean. I even got to ride horse-back on the beach! Also, of course all of the special moments I got to have with the children. Having them run to say good morning to me every morning was truly special.

What was the most difficult thing you experienced?
On one of my last days there, one of my favorite little boys got really sick. He was feverish and lethargic. He just wasn’t himself, and I could tell he felt awful. It was painful not to be able to just give him the medicine I have in my cabinet at home to make him feel better.

 

What was the one thing you wished you were better prepared for?
The heat! I packed lightly, with mostly longer pants and capris. I didn’t expect for it to be okay to wear modest shorts, but I think it would have been okay, and I was sweating so much the whole month!

Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
Light t-shirts and tank tops, long shorts for the girls! I would bring a smaller “weekend” bag if you want to travel. Expect a lot of unpleasant tro-tro rides, but it’s the best way to get around so suffer through it! I would bring your own body wash and shampoos, it can be hard to find that kind of stuff in town! I would definitely make a trip to Kokrobite, and Cape Coast! Those were the best places that I visited.

 

How would you describe/rate your experience working with the ABV staff in the USA?
I appreciated the opportunity they gave me, and how easy they made it for me to make my dream a reality. I would have liked to receive more phone calls, however, especially when it came closer to my actual departure date.

How was the local ABV Director and the support provided in-country?
They were true Ghanaians- very laid back, but extremely friendly. They didn’t “hold my hand” throughout the experience though. They set me up and helped me in the beginning, but left me to experience things on my own for the most part after that-occasionally checking in on me.

 

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):
I would like to thank ABV for allowing me to get to travel to Africa in a safe and reliable way. I have an amazing experience and wouldn’t trade it for the world.
It was hard to adjust back to my “American” lifestyle because it is so much more fast-paced and I feel like I have been a little behind ever since I returned! But in a good way, because I have really stopped to appreciate all that I have. I will never forget the amazing people I met. The beautiful children, and the wonderful volunteers that I got to share my experience with will always be in my heart.

What was your favorite memory of this trip? I have so many! I met many other volunteers who were in the same area as me, and we would go out and take trips https://www.abroaderview.org

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):

When I was in Guatemala, the ABV staff treated me with kindness, compassion and love. I will always be grateful that they were in my life while I was here.

How would you describe your accommodation, meals, security (e: host family, on-site, shared)

They were great! I had a room to myself and the host mom treated me like one of her own. I always felt safe and secure, and was overly fed, which was awesome!
