“ The United States Embassy Association – USEA is pleased to support AidJoy’s programs in the Peruvian Amazon. Spreading the word about the Hospital Boats and the possibility to help and get to know the Peruvian indigenous communities in the jungle will leverage the cultural exchange between Peruvians and volunteers from all over the world. While these communities have developed great knowledge about their environment, medical doctors and other volunteers can share their expertise and knowledge to help these communities.
This amazing project puts together the health and medication needs of the communities located in the isolated veins of Peru’s jungle, and the medical vocation, philanthropic interests, the possibility to become a volunteer, and the opportunity to have a unique experience of humanitarian assistance while traveling by river several days. Thousands of mothers and kids, men and women have benefited from this project, being able to get to a hospital and have their medical needs attended. Many lives have been saved. But there is s till much more to do.”
