Peru 2020

Fellow Travellers,

It is that time again, time to join us in visiting Peru! We are starting preparations for our 10th medical campaign to this beautiful country with accompanying Inka Trail trek (with option to do an Amazon Adventure in its place).
Also, prior to the 18th (would depart US on or about the 9th), there is a nine day land option visiting Lima, the NAZCA Lines, Arequipa, the Colca Valley, and Puno with Lake Titicaca. If you are interested in this land option, please let us know and we’ll send you the program.
As always, even if you are not a medical professional you are free to join us as we help to provide care to those in need in the Cusco region, OR just join us for the travel and trek portion of the trip!
