The goal of FIMRC in Peru is to provide a unique perspective into the medical system, as well as provide unique education opportunities to different populations and institutions. As a result, La Merced is unique in that volunteers will gain exposure to the public hospital and outreach medical campaigns rather than a FIMRC clinic, offering a unique glimpse into systems of medicine vastly different from those in the US. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to support native communities in the region.Volunteers in La Merced have the opportunity to shadow or work in the local hospital. Volunteers are also an integral part of health education to children and families in two native communities in the La Merced area - Marankiari Bajo and Orito Bajo.
The nature of the volunteer mission to Peru will vary depending on the number of volunteers in each group, the seasonal timing of the mission, the length of the volunteer trip, medical expertise and training, as well as the current needs of the community and partner hospital.
We accept individual and group volunteers. Contact us today with your preferred travel dates!
