The latitude for Bunduburam, Ghana (note the spelling difference) is
5.5333 (5 degrees, 31 minutes, 59.88 seconds N); the longitude is
-0.4667 (0 degrees, 28 minutes, 0 seconds W).

There is a limit to zooming in under Google maps, so you won't get
much in the way of detail. Mapquest and show roads,
though - still not much in the way of detail.

says the population within 7 km is 11,299; I don't know when the
population estimate was made. I also don't know how far the refugee
camp is from Bunduburam itself.

Search strategy: Bunduburam Ghana latitude longitude 
(Google gave me the option of this spelling when I typed in Bunduburum.)

Typo: I should have typed in Buduburam (no "n").

There are 40,000 refugees in this camp according to the 7/05 video
linked at this site:
