Most of the poor in Peru are still deprived of proper healthcare, as facilities are expensive and not widely available. This is more so in rural areas where most of the poor indigenous people live. People travel great distance for medical care and even now many people succumb to curable disease. To avoid this from happening and make treatment possible to every Peruvian, the project is supporting efforts of medical professionals.

What difference does this project make?

You will support health clinic or hospital projects through spreading awareness of sanitation, common diseases, and the benefits of visiting healthcare professionals in the case of illness. You'll also perform checkups and assist the doctors or nurses. In your free time, you can visit fascinating national parks that are home to the giant silverback guerillas.
