 VI Misión Médica Internacional – Amazonas 2018



Sponsored by

Christian Life Movement (CLM) &  Club Amazonas USA


Introduction: We are a Catholic organization that recruits groups of doctors, nurses, and volunteers to plan medical mission trips to Peru three times a year. We gather volunteers from the United States with centers in Miami and Denver, Peru with a center in Lima, and Canada with a center in Toronto. We welcome people from all walks of life who are able and willing to help those in need.


Next Trip: From August 10th to August 12th, 2018, we will be doing our VI mission to the Amazonas region in Peru to provide basic medical care to the less fortunate people living in several towns throughout this part of the mountains far from the Peruvian coast. Last year, our missions to Peru helped thousands of people by providing medical care to several communities and their families.


We are always in need of Doctors (Internal Medicine, Family Practice, OB/GYN, Rheumatology, Endocrinology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Podiatry, Surgery, Dental, etc.) ARNP’s, PA’s, Pharmacists, Paramedics, and Nurses. However, everyone is welcome, even if you do not have any medical background, there are many things that you can do to help us on our mission.


Meetings: In an effort to ensure the smoothest possible execution of all the mission tasks, we will be holding a couple of meetings in Miami, Florida before August of 2018 and also in Lima, Peru before our departure.


Air Travel: We will be flying with LATAM Airlines from Miami to Lima (Flight Number LA 2461) on the 9th of August and then flying from Lima to the city of Jaen (Flight Number LA 2298) the same day. Flights will be modified for those flying from other cities. Our goal is to have as many out-of-town (non-Miami residents) mission members as possible participate in the mission and fly out of Miami with us. The main group will be departing from Miami on August 9th at 01:05 AM and will be arriving to Lima, Peru at 6:40 AM, therefore we will meet at Miami International Airport (MIA) the night before at 11:00 PM; then at 11:00 AM, we will be taking an early morning flight to the city of Jaen (Flight Number LA 2298). From Jaen we will travel 3 hours by Bus to the City of Chachapoyas.


Regarding our return, we will be departing from Chachapoyas and travelling to Jaen by Bus, on August 16th at 8:30 AM to then take a flight from Jaen to Lima (Flight Number LA 2299) at 01:15 PM, then from Lima to Miami (Flight Number LA 2464) on the following day (August 17th) at 12:45 AM, which will land in Miami the same day at 7:30 AM.
For your travel arrangements, please contact Ketty Gilvey @ Atlantis Travel at 305-222- 8968.


We are requiring that everyone participating in this mission must fly in and out of Miami on the same flights. We realize that some volunteers may want to use frequent flyer miles to pay for their tickets using other airlines or may have other travel plans pre or post the mission dates. In these cases, we will NOT be able to make any special arrangements for transportation, lodging, or luggage storage for anyone who travels outside the group itinerary. Therefore, you will be responsible for your own transportation and lodging for all dates and times that fall outside of the group’s itinerary.


Baggage Instructions: Please take all TSA regulations into consideration when packing your bags as there are no exceptions for those traveling on mission trips to Peru. Each person will check in 2 bags and one carry-on. Please be aware, there have been thefts of items placed in checked luggage. Therefore, keep anything valuable in your carry-on and be sure to place a TSA approved lock on your checked luggage.


Please do not take expensive jewelry, cameras or other valuables on the trip.  Make copies of your passport and/or credit card in case of an emergency.


Please bring electrical converters to charge any electrical equipment.  You may want to consult your cell phone carrier regarding international phone service if you so desire. We will later provide you with the addresses and phone numbers of the hotels where we will be staying as well as the name of local contact persons to leave behind for your families.


Please check the latest airline policy regarding carry-ons and checked bags. For LATAM Airlines’ baggage information, please visit


Note: Upon landing in Peru, go through immigration, pick up your own luggage, clear customs, and then exit the building. Thereafter, exit the building where a CAUSA staff member will be waiting for you with a sign. If the staff member is not present, just wait outside the building until the representative arrives.



Warning: It is unlawful to bring medications or medical supplies that will expire within 14 months. Any such medication will be confiscated by the authorities.


Tourism: Peru is a fascinating destination and the Amazonas region is particularly an amazing place to visit with several historical attractions like the forbidden fortress of Kuelap (Built by a Pre-Inca civilization more than 800 years old) and the cataracts of Gocta (the third tallest in the world). Usually after the medical missions are done, some of the volunteers decide to stay a few extra days in Peru in order to sightsee and explore at their leisure. However, since the Amazonas region is so far from the capital and for our own safety, our hosts, and local mission sponsors have arranged group tours to the most important places in region during our last 3 days there. The cost of this 3-day escapade is already included in the mission fees.

We will be traveling to Gocta on Monday August 13th, Visiting Kuelap on Tuesday August 14th and will be feasting in Chachapoyas our last day there Wednesday August 15th. For those participants who may have already visited Kuelap and/or Gocta, we have a second option available which include visits to Rodrigues de Mendoza and Leymebamba.


Rodriguez de Mendoza, is a charming district south-east of Chachapoyas famous for the quality of its coffee and the friendliness of its people. Speleologists from all over the world gather here to explore the hidden beauty of the famous local caves. The most popular two are named ‘Caverna de Leo’ and ‘Cavernas de Omia’. In Leymebamaba we will visit the Leymebamaba Museum, which was built to provide a place for the preservation of the mummies and archaeological materials recovered from Laguna de los Cóndores in 1997. This work was conducted by Centro Mallqui with contributions from the international communities from Austria, Finland, Italy and the U.S., as well as significant contributions from the Institute for Bioarcheology, the von Hagen family and the Discovery Channel.


About Peru: Please note that Peru is a relatively safe country; however, we are unable to completely guarantee your safety, especially if someone does things outside the itinerary or leaves the group. For these same reasons, we do not allow minors unless a parent or guardian accompanies them. We will provide security for the group at all times. However, you will be responsible for your own safety if you choose to arrive earlier or stay beyond the set mission dates.


Housing & Meals: We will be staying at a hotel in the city of Chachapoyas. The total cost per person will be $600 for the 8 days of the mission, which equates to $75 per day and covers the costs of local transportation within the Amazonas region, lodging in Chachapoyas, three daily meals, a vest (required to identify you during the whole trip), and lastly the three-day tour mentioned in the Tourism paragraph on the previous page.
