Mission Details : MMI will facilitate a two week medical project in Arequipa, Peru from July 21 - August 4, 2018. MMI’s work in Peru began in 1999. Apart from the 1 and 2-week projects taking place, it has been possible to support the MMI Peru charity and its dedicated team of local staff. The city of Arequipa has a large number of public and private health centers, however urban slum conditions mean that many individuals still suffer from lack of access to basic services. This project is part of the Vision Program and will focus on eye surgery and optical. The MMI team will provide cataract surgeries and optometry to help the municipality deal with the need for these services.The MMI team will provide screening for pathology, surgical candidates, and refractive error. The optical component will dispense Rx and reading glasses to patients. Non-medical personnel are also welcome to participate as general helpers. The team will be staffed with North American volunteers and involve local staff when possible. Teams work Monday-Friday. Participants make a project donation which covers all in-country expenses, including accommodations and meals. Air fare is extra. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and serve the people of Peru! For further information, please visit or contact the project team at This email address is being protected from spambots.
