Full description:Diabetes is a health issue that is under-addressed in the public health sector. In the public hospital in Ho there are only two dedicated nurses in the ward who can deal with 60 plus patients every morning. They need your help. Being a volunteer in the diabetes ward you will be counselling patients on how to live with diabetes, including what to eat, drink and how to live a healthy lifestyle......
Additional info:At VAF we do not believe in volunteers paying exorbitant fees and 'administrative costs' when all you want to do is come and make a difference. VAF is a real, practical organization and we know exactly what volunteers need and want.

All program fees are inclusive of accommodation with a local Ghanaian family, food - three meals a day supplied by the host family including drinking water, airport pickup and transfer and a contribution to VAF and your program. As a sign of trust no deposit is required.

As a foreigner in another country the actual volunteering is only part of the stay. As a volunteer you will be submersing yourself in another culture, learning the ways of life from your co-workers, getting to know the local children, and integrating yourself within your host family.
