Medical Mission in Peru

COVID 19 Resources

For up to date and accurate information about COVID safety, visit the CDC or WHO websites.

I am currently working on my Masters of Science in Nursing With a Track in Family Nurse Practitioner and I have been invited to participate in a socio-medical mission trip to Peru with Nelida Silva, candidate for mayor of Llamellin, for her “Health and Wellness for the People of Llamellin” project August 25-30. 

We will be setting up a small clinic in the village of Llamellin where we will offer medical care to those in need. Llamellin is part of a province called Antonio Raymondi, located in the coastal mountains, approximately 300 miles from Lima, the capital of Peru. We won't have the luxury of diagnostic testing such as lab work and x-rays, instead we will have our stethoscopes, some common medications and vaccinations, a few medical tools, and our clinical expertise to help those who would not otherwise be able to seek medical care. 

I am hoping you will be able to help me with this once in a lifetime opportunity. The cost of the trip is approximately $2,000 for flight expenses, medical supplies and the transportation of the medical supplies. If you are able, I would appreciate any donation you're willing to give.
