Power of a Nickel Returns to Peru!
TRIP IS FULL
PON will be returning to Peru and the villages of the Amazon in August 2022, having last served at this site in February 2020. We have continued contact and support throughout the pandemic and are committed to cautiously embarking upon our fifth service trip to this region. Our group will be small, including three PON Board members, with goals including not only basic primary health care and community education, but also reestablishing a needs assessment for our next, larger outreach, tentatively planned for spring of 2023.
We will work from several hospitals, reacquainting ourselves with our long-term partners, and assessing the changes that have occurred. We offer five days of clinic in Iquitos, devoted to the indigenous people, who often experience poverty, malnutrition, and lack of access to basic care. A portion of the team will progress to the villages of the Amazon, again assessing needs, providing health care, and planning for our future trips. This trip will include travel by in-country air, water, and land. All services will be performed in conjunction with local Peruvian organizations, NGOs, guides, and security. Translators will join us, accompanied by Win-Win connection.
We are full of gratitude and hope for this opportunity and look forward to a larger PON group in Peru in the spring.
