PAMS, the Peruvian American Medical Society, conducts medical mission trips to impoverished areas of Peru, however Churcampa cannot benefit from these programs because it doesn't have the necessary sterile environment. By building an operating room, not only would it improve immediate health conditions but potentially could allow for us to secure a regular PAMS mission to provide services in cardiology, OB/GYN, orthopedics, plastic surgery, and more.
This August, with the combined efforts of PAMS Southern California chapter and RAKLife, we will be expanding the medical post by building an operating room; conducting a medical fair that will provide ambulatory medical care and tetanus vaccinations; offering optometry services and donating glasses; donating medical supplies to the medical center; doing repairs on the local church and elementary school; and providing the children of Churcampa and the surrounding areas with warm socks, tennis shoes, backpacks, and rain ponchos.
We have been fundraising and planning for over a year and we are nearly there! Please consider making a donation, anything helps!
