We are looking for heath care professionals (dentists, doctors, nurses, optometrists, etc) to visit and provide whatever level of care they may to the members of the Yagua tribe in the indigenous village of La Libertad, Colombia. The village is located on the banks of the Amazon River, close to the borders of Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.
The village is one of the poorest in the region. In addition to medical services, education and planning is also needed to support the villagers.
The project offers a clean place to stay, drinkable water, and an in-village support person who only speaks Spanish.
This is a beautiful, wild, less-visited area of the Amazon. Many of our volunteers also take some time to experience eco-tourism during their visit.
