At Project Huancayo, FIMRC strives to make an impact in the highlands of Peru. Peru’s medical facilities are critically underfunded, thus FIMRC aims to strengthen the current infrastructure rather than operate a stand alone facility.
Our site offers volunteers unique exposure to public hospitals and clinics vastly different from those in the US. Volunteers will have the opportunity to conduct rounds alongside medical personnel as well as assist with public health initiatives with our partner organizations. On health campaigns, volunteers have the opportunity to gain clinical experience by providing HIV and STI testing. Volunteers are also instrumental in carrying out health education lessons in local orphanages and providing psychosocial support for teen mothers who have experienced trauma.
FIMRC is proud to be a grassroots sustainable organization. Volunteer with FIMRC and make an impact with an organization that's working in the community even long after your trip!
