Project Amazonas has the only regularly operating hospital boat in the Peruvian Amazon. Our current boat, the Tucunare, provides basic medical care for six to eight thousand people annually who would otherwise have little to no access to healthcare.
Your donation will fund a mission to serve the communities along the Peruvian Amazon. For a trip with ten medical personnel and six crew aboard, daily operating costs for a journey to a remote river area are about $1000 per day including fuel, food, crew salary, and medical supplies.
"When the new medical ship goes into service, I want to be there. I want to go back. It's beautiful, everything about the Amazon, even what's weird and scary. It's a wild place and the sweetness of those people, their gratitude and all, there's no way to describe it."
“These people are the keepers of the Amazon rainforest. I wish I could do more to help them!”
