Bijilo Medical Center is a healthcare facility located in Bijilo, The Gambia. It provides essential medical services to the local community, including outpatient services, inpatient care and maternal and child health services. The center was founded in 2001 by Dr. Musa Touray, a Gambian physician that recognised the lack of reliable healthcare and aspired to improve the medical landscape for the Gambian population.

Volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center is a unique opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of Gambian people. As a volunteer, you'll have the chance to work side by side with local medical staff, assisting with a range of tasks that support the center's operations. Depending on your skills and interests, you may help with patient intake and registration, assist with basic medical procedures, or provide administrative support to the center's staff, as well as contribute to the maintenance work of the facility. Whatever your role, you'll be making a valuable contribution to a worthy cause.

One of the most rewarding aspects of volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center is the chance to connect with the local community. Being one of the most affordable private clinics in the country,  BMC serves a diverse population of people, including many who live in poverty and have limited access to healthcare services. By volunteering at the center, you'll have the opportunity to meet and work with people from different backgrounds, learn about their lives and experiences, and make new friends.

In addition to the personal fulfillment that comes with volunteering, there are also practical benefits. Volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center is a great way to gain valuable work experience in the healthcare field, especially if you're considering or already pursuing a career in medicine or nursing. You'll have the chance to work with experienced medical professionals, learn new skills, and gain hands-on experience that can be applied in a variety of settings.

Of course, volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center is not without its challenges. Volunteers should be prepared to work hard, adapt to new situations, and be flexible in their roles. However, for those who are willing to put in the effort, the rewards are well worth it.

If you're interested in volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center, there are a few things to keep in mind. The center welcomes volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels, but some medical experience or training is preferred. Volunteers should also be able to commit to at least a few weeks of service, as this allows time to become familiar with the BMC’s operations and make a meaningful contribution.

Volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people who need it most. By working alongside local medical professionals and connecting with the community, volunteers can gain valuable experience while making a meaningful contribution to a worthy cause. If you're looking for a way to give back and make a positive impact, consider volunteering at Bijilo Medical Center.
