Established in 2009 by Dr. Santiago Calderon and Dr. Pablo Perez, Santiago de Chuco Mission provides short term medical, surgical, dental vision, health education and medical health services to the impoverished and underserved town of Santiago de Chuco, Peru. Most of the people who receive assistance are women, children and the elderly. Located in the Andean area above the city of Trujillo in Libertad, Peru, Santiago de Chuco welcomes these two yearly medical missions led by PAMSEF former president, Dr. Pablo Perez and assisted by PAMS’s chapter CAL president, Dr. Federico Alva, Executive Director Maria L. Alva and their children Juan, Rosa and Julio Alva. The Mission’s three main goals are: 1 Organize Two medical mission’s per year at the Local Health Center “Cesar Vallejo” 2. Establish a permanent medical mission in Santiago de Chuco 3. Nourish the children, who are the future leaders of Santiago de Chuco and collaborate with the program”El Adulto Mayor “to assist the elderly population. By establishing partnerships with local medical providers, our PAMS Santiago de Chuco Mission has been able to see around 1,200 to 1,400 patients annually, perform general and eye surgery and provide medical and dental services. These partnerships result in the valuable sharing of knowledge and empower the local people to provide for and care for their own health care. While volunteering on these mission trips, participants experience and share their skills and talent in a new culture. Thanks to the help of many selfless volunteers, we have completed our goals of education and providing free specialized care to Santiago de Chuco’s humble people. There is no greater gift than being able to help by giving back to those in needs. Please join us in our fundraising efforts by donating or volunteering. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
