Health & Medical Project Donations!


On September 13, 2017, the donations for Hospital Victor Guardia  in Huaraz, Peru were delivered. During our summer sessions, volunteers were able to shadow doctors and nurses in areas such as pediatrics, surgery, physical therapy and emergency. Volunteers are asked to observe the need for materials in the hospital because part of the project fee includes a donation to their worksite. Also, volunteers are encouraged to speak with hospital staff about necessary materials and equipment. We were able to donate medical supplies such as stethoscopes, blood pressure tensiometers, suturing kits, trauma shears, mosquito clamps, kelly pincers, hospital bed sheets, electric stove and a manual resuscitator, which were distributed to different departments in the hospital. The donations also included elastic bands, foam roller and dumbbell set for the physical therapy department.

Animal Health Project!


This summer we had our volunteer from Riverside, California participate in our animal health project. She was able to shadow and assist veterinarians in a local vet clinic and help clean and feed wild rescued animals in a zoo. Our volunteer stated “Taking part in the Animal Health Project was an amazing opportunity. I gained hands-on experience as part of the team. The local veterinarians were a great help in teaching me how to treat animals such as giving vaccines and taking part in a surgery. I was able to witness the love these people have for their pets and feel the gratitude when I helped their animals”. To conclude the project, a vet campaign was held for the community of Alto Trujillo providing free rabie vaccines, anti-parasite oral medication and anti-flea spray.  Our awesome volunteer and with the help of a local vet vaccinated 33 dogs and 2 cats. It was a fun day to see the members of their community bring their furry family members to keep them healthy!

Recent flooding in Peru have impacted many communities in the department of La Libertad. Today food, water and hygiene items were delivered to the community of Tupac Amaru in Porvenir. We want to thank our donors and volunteers who made this possible! It’s amazing to see people come together to help those in need.
