Senegal Medical Tour
Study Medical Science & Public Health in Senegal
The Worldwide Navigators Difference
Upon arrival in Senegal, take a private transport about 45 minutes to Mbour. There will be an orientation meeting in the evening to prepare you for the days ahead.
You will see and care for many Talibé children in Mbour along with the very elderly, families, and whole villages. The street children we will care for get virtually no care and it is our honor to care for them in Senegal.
Today, your group will transport to Thiadiaye for another day of clinic. After an amazing clinic day in a special city, we will drive to Touba where we will spend the night.
After breakfast, your group will set out to see the Grande Mosque. Touba is the holiest city in Africa and is the birthplace of Sufism. Very few outsiders receive a tour of the mosque, and we are honored to have the privilege.
After your tour of the Grande Mosque, your group will head to Djourbel for clinic. You will see Talibe children and members of the community. After clinic, your team will travel about 1.5 hours to Thies where we will hold the last 3 days of clinic.
For the final 3 days of clinic, your group will work with the Talibe children in a large, traditional village. These patients are often quite ill and have been visited by International Medical Relief for years.
At the end of clinic on Day 7, your group will transport back to Mbour for the night.
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel then bid farewell to beautiful Senegal as you head to the airport for your international flight home.
Bienvenue au Sénégal!
Most of Senegal remains rural, with very limited education, almost no health care outside of the cities, and extreme poverty. More than 20% of children are malnourished, and malaria is a common cause of death. Burns occur daily in villages where families cook food over open fires. In partnership with International Medical Relief, your group will make a difference in the lives of the people in this remarkable country.
On this expedition, we will focus our efforts on the Talibé children. Today, the children, living in “daaras” or schools, are found more often on the streets than in the classroom. The Talibé children live in dire conditions, sleeping on concrete floors with dozens of other, beg on the streets for countless hours each day to pay their daily fee to their teacher, and often endure intense beatings at school.
