Amazon Promise responds to an enormous local need by offering essential medical, dental, health education and training services from our base in Iquitos, Peru and via outreach trips to 32 remote river villages.
In addition, we are building local capacity through our self-sustaining medical clinic and training center in Belén, an especially neglected and impoverished town adjacent to Iquitos.
All our non-profit services are respectful of local cultures, incorporating traditional medicine through shamanic and ethno-botanical treatments in conjunction with Western medical practices.
We also provide quarterly Family Planning Clinics and Medical Clinics in villages in the lower Ucayali River with the support of the Ministry of Health.
Health & Wellness
Below you can find more information about Amazon Promise’s individual programs.
In response to communities that have requested our assistance, we have designed these programs to alleviate immediate suffering and improve long-term health outcomes in the communities we serve. Our programs deliver medical care and outreach that addresses urgent and chronic diseases and conditions, including assessment, treatment, laboratory tests and follow up. In addition, they provide healthcare education and training.
Wherever possible, we partner on the ground with Peruvian staff and medical practitioners.
