Medical volunteers in Cameroon work in clinics and hospitals where an effort is made to tailor the placement to the volunteer's level of experience and interests. In developing countries such as Cameroon, a far lower standard of medical service and resourcing is available. Patients whose conditions are at an advanced stage are far more commonly found, and this can represent a considerable challenge and learning experience for the volunteer.
Tasks on this program include observing and directly assisting doctors and nurses. This is achieved by accompanying doctors on rounds and helping in various ways as required. Branches of medicine requiring volunteers include Nursing, Midwifery, Dentistry, Traditional Medicine, and Physiotherapy.
As with all of our wonderful projects in Cameroon, volunteers are accommodated in our comfortable volunteer house located in central Buea. Here they are provided with breakfast and dinner. Volunteers will have weekends free to explore the sights and sounds of this amazing country.

Love Volunteers welcomes all who wish to volunteer and give their time and energy to help improve the lives of others in a developing country. Whilst some programs require specific education, qualifications and experience, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
