Peruvian Amazon Medical Mission

Hello All, 

This will mark my second medical mission trip, and certainly not the last! For those of you that don't know; I participated in a surgical missions trip to Zambia, Africa, in October 2015. The team and I, in coordination with Raphael Ministries and a Bridge for Peace, were stationed at Kitwe Central Hospital where we preformed over 70 surgeries, some lasting over eight hours in length. It was an amazing experience and we truly changed the lives of the people that we treated. This year I will be traveling to Iquitos, Peru, at the end of April. I will be teaming up with an organization, Project Amazonas, that has grouped together roughly  10 medical professionals from around the globe. We will be traveling along the Amazon River, village to village, where we will have to bushwhack and forge paths to some of the most unreachable places.  From there we will camp in tents and sleep on boats at each village we are set to go to. It is truly a remote expedition. The indigenous people that inhabit these areas are not well educated about proper hygiene and disease prevention (especially HIV), thus we will serve to educate, as well as treat an array of clinical cases ranging from infections to broken bones. As you may know already these types of trips are not cheap to participate in, likewsie they are not paid, it is stricly volunteer. I must raise $4,000 to offset the costs of the expedition and necessary equiptment. If you would like to further donate; please visit my bonfire campaign page where you can purchase a T-shirt (https://www.bonfire.com/peruvian-medical-mission/). Also, feel free to read all of the wonderful testimonies and stories found on the Project Amazonas webpage (https://www.projectamazonas.org).

Thank you all very much and God bless,
Nico McMahon
