Student Nurse Loved Volunteering in Ghana

FORMER STUDENT NURSE WHO ‘LOVED’ VOLUNTEERING IN GHANA LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH STREET CHILDREN IN MOMBASSA

A Former Student nurse ‘loved’ her time spent doing voluntary work abroad in Ghana so much that she returned 2 months later, and is now about to volunteer in Mombassa, Kenya.

Hannah Mcelroy from Cheshire went to Ghana in May 2008, and enjoyed the two weeks that she spent there so much that she returned seven weeks later.

During her time there she volunteered in an Orphanage, and helped to dig out the foundations for a building on a remote Island on which she camped, on Lake Volta. She also spent some time at the Lisa Findlay school, and enjoyed taking the children from the Orphanage out for the day to a park that was being built in the grounds of the school.

During her time in Ghana she made several friends who she kept in touch with, partly through Facebook, and felt that the people of Ghana were ‘very friendly’. She has already recommended the experience to other people, and enjoyed her time volunteering so much that she has decided to spend three months in Mombassa in Kenya from March working with the Street Children.

She feels that in spending a longer period of time volunteering abroad she will be able to make a greater contribution, and is really looking forward to the time she will be spending there.

We wish Hannah well, and we are pleased to hear that she had such a wonderful time in Ghana. If you feel that you would like to take part in similar projects why not get in touch by e mailing us on [email protected]
