Volunteer, VETS Program

Maria Stanborough is an urban planning consultant and a writer. Maria will be doing a 2 1/2 week placement in rural Ghana, documenting the work of Veterinarians Without Borders North America. She will be sharing her communications knowledge with the local community and diving deep into how to be part of the global solution on health and wellbeing.

"I have been a fan of the holistic approach of Vets without Borders for some time. When the opportunity came up for a volunteer short-term communications role, I jumped at it. I feel so fortunate to be able to provide my skills to an organization and to communities that are seeking to ensure sustainable health and wellbeing for people in Ghana." - Maria
