As stated in our mission statement, A Promise to Peru, Inc. provides an annual cataract surgical and medical mission to the remote villages of the Sacred Valley of Peru and other regions in need.  We are excited to announce our date and location for 2015…  We are traveling to a new region to provide our support: Guayaquil, Ecuador for the week of June 15, 2015.   El Centro Misionero de Salud “Maria Leonor Aguiar” is the clinic where our medical team will host clinics of various subspecialties such as ophthalmology, dermatology, infectious disease, women’s health, pediatrics, ultrasonography and general medicine.  It will also be the location where our ophthalmologists will perform cataract surgery.  All of these services will be provided free of charge to the patients.   For this mission, A Promise to Peru, Inc will be working with Blanca’s House, also a Long Island based nonprofit organization. They will assist us in coordinating the outreach of the neediest patients for surgery and medical care.  As well as in the long term follow up care of these patients with local physicians.

Our board of directors is very excited to expand our mission to Ecuador for 2015 and we are looking forward to another successful mission! Be assured that it is our intention to return to our wonderful patients in the Sacred Valley, Peru. All of us remain very committed to their well-being.
