Jenny's Trip with Promise to Peru
Organized by: Jenny Kim
EVENT DATE Jun 12, 2016
Hey everyone, I am going on a medical mission trip to work with the underserved in rural Peru this June and would love your support! Our team will set up a medical and ophthalmology clinic for five days in Urubamba, Peru near the city of Cuzco. We are participating through Promise To Peru, an excellent non-profit founded by doctors from Stony Brook (click here for more information about the organization)
Many individuals in this region live in extreme poverty with limited or no access to health care. Many have lost their eyesight from cataracts and are resigned to a life of declining vision and blindness. Others, especially children and young adults, are unable to live without assistance due to issues like astigmatism or near-sightedness that are highly manageable in the developed world.
Please consider contributing to our trip! If you have any questions do not hesitate to private message me. If you want to stay updated on our experiences, please let me know and I will send group email updates :) (Also, please like us on facebook!)
