There are challenges in the entire world. To say challenges will be very vague and may not convey the mind of the writer of this article. While development is on the daily basis taking place in the developed economies of the world such as United States of America, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia and the likes. There are yet some countries whose citizens are living below poverty level in terms of human development index.
Therefore, this article is taking a look at the effort of some medical personnel, who has taken it upon themselves to make the difference in the life of other less privileged people. These are called “Doctors beyond Borders” or better still Overseas Hospital Volunteers.  This article will look into this in two aspects; the volunteer job itself and vacation time of the volunteers.

  • It is selfless service which these personnel give to the less privilege. They abandon the comfort of their home and families and choose to serve in remote parts of other continents such as Asia, Latin America and some parts of Africa. What they engage in and in collaboration with some local people is the provision of health services which the government cannot adequately or sufficiently provide their people. These doctors expose themselves to high level risk, such as communicable diseases and other environmental hazards. Most often, they unperturbed, but the propelling force is the love of humanity and to save lives. They should be commended for their large heart to serve.
  • It is noteworthy to say that, all work and no play make jack a dull boy. Survey has revealed that, most of these doctors do over work themselves in order to serve the people of the locality where their located. It is important to let them know that they must learn to create recreation time for themselves despite the busy schedule which they run. Good enough, there are recreational centers in most of the countries where they are rendering this humanitarian service. It will do a lot of good to their wellbeing.

Volunteering to help serve the less privilege is an honorable thing that all professionals, not only the medical practitioners should do.
