Medical Missions
to Peru

Our mission is to be a lighthouse for Christ through a medical ministry in the Peruvian Amazon region of South America.

Our Vision for the Peruvian Amazon

  • Blend Peruvian and American volunteers, our staff and medical professionals, for the care of musculoskeletal conditions
  • Serve the physical and spiritual needs of Pucallpan Peruvians, tribal populations, and the missionaries who serve them
  • Integrate educational exchange to catalyze knowledge and understanding of orthopaedics and rehabilitation
  • Track patient outcome for accountability to the highest standard of care
  • Seek opportunities to spawn Peruvian development in the industry of medicine and growth of the Church
  • Desire a spiritual cascade through the lives of American volunteers with impact to the communities in which they live
