“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,” (Luke 4:18)
- Submit a questionnaire to join us on our next trip to serve Pucallpa, Peru.
There is an incredible need for medical and surgical care for the community of Pucallpa. Did you know that only five small hospitals in Pucallpa serve a population estimated above 450,000 persons. Not to mention the infant mortality rate is 30 per 1000 people and there are .39 physicians to every 1,000 people. As if the need were not problematic enough, the district hospitals providing initial treatment to these patients are not equipped with the funding, resources, or expertise necessary to treat severe injuries. Scalpel sends team members for 10 days at a time to provide surgical and medical attention to the community. We travel 3-4 times a year but couldn't do it without the help of volunteers like you. This is an extension of the gospel, we see what it is to use physical healing and service as a parallel to spiritual healing and faith, and how to use physical help to share about spiritual hope! If you are hesitant and want to learn more read our FAQ. If you are moved to travel with us submit a questionnaire and we will be in touch.
