You can help


The impoverished people of the Amazon desperately need your help. Your donation will help purchase medicine and supplies, hold clinics, provide for essential needs, and make sustainable improvements in this remote corner of the world where the poor are too often forgotten.

When you help a sick child or sick adult, you bring joy and hope, and you enable that adult to work and try to climb above the economic, social and emotional stress their family faces each day.

Donate Medical Supplies or Medications

Share

 

Medical supplies and medications are a continual need for both Amazon Promise's jungle and city clinics. Amazon Promise purchases the majority of medicines needed, but they are often low-quality and some things cannot be found in Peru or are extremely expensive. Additionally, many program volunteers purchase or solicit medical supplies or medications from their community and bring them down to Peru.  However, we are always in need of more. Licensed medical practitioners can also order medications and supplies through MAP International or Americares, and/or various pharmaceutical companies.

If you would like more information about donating supplies, equipment, or medicines, please contact Abigail Scherrer at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
