Make a REAL difference in Cameroon with Love Volunteers Medical Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
Volunteers on this program will find they can truly get stuck in and help the locals on this medical placement. The program welcome volunteers with a wide range of experience, including qualified medical personnel, medical students and pre-med students. Medical volunteers in Cameroon serve on placements 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 noticeable. Patients whose condition is at an advanced stage are far more commonly found, this can represent a considerable challenge and learning experience for the volunteer on a medical project. Due to a lack of resources and low levels of staffing, volunteers will find that their assistance is both greatly needed and appreciated.

- Improve the future prospects of the people of Bamenda
- Provide quality medical care to the impoverished people of the area
