Christian Life Movement (CLM) &
Solidaridad en Marcha
We are the CLM (Christian Life Movement), a Catholic
organization that recruits groups of doctors, nurses
and volunteers to plan three times a year medical
mission trips to Lima, Peru. We gather volunteers
from the USA (centers in Miami and Denver), Peru
(center in Lima) and other countries (center in
Toronto, Canada), and welcome people from different
faiths. For the Pamplona trip we joint efforts with
“Solidarity Experiences Abroad” from Canada.
Our primary goal is to provide basic medical care to
the poor people of Pamplona Alta, living around
Lima, the capital of Peru. These people do not
usually have access to health care and most of them
are women and children. In Lima we work with local
volunteers and doctors from the Peruvian
“Solidaridad en Marcha” a branch from the CLM,
with whom we coordinate and organize these missions.
We are now planning our 9th Medical Mission Trip to
Peru. Last year, our mission helped thousands of
people by providing medical care to the Pamplona
Alta community and their families. I know many of
you have experienced previous medical mission trips
and we hope you will be inspired to help us build
the next mission that will take place in February
14th to 19th, 2013.
are always in need of Doctors (Internal Medicine,
Family Practice, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Dermatology,
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 during the mission.
In an effort to ensure the smoothest possible
execution of all the mission tasks, we will be
holding 3 meetings before February 2013 in Miami,
Denver and Toronto before departure.
We will be flying on LAN Peru from Miami to Lima
(flights will be coordinated for those flying from
other cities). Our goal is to have as many
out-of-town (non-Miami) mission members as possible
to fly out of Miami with us.
The main group will be departing Miami on February
14th at approximately 6 p.m. and will be returning
from Lima on February 19th at approximately 7 p.m.
Right now the Miami-Lima-Miami fare is $700 (group
are requiring that everyone participating in this
mission must fly in and out 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. You
will be responsible for your own transportation and
lodging for dates and times outside the group
About Peru: Peru is a relatively safe country; however, we cannot
completely guarantee for your safety; especially if
someone does things outside the itinerary or leaves
the group. For these same reasons we do not allow
minors unless they are accompanied by a parent or
guardian. 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 retreat house in Lima. The
cost per person will be $550 for the 5 days of the
mission, which includes local transportation,
lodging, 3 meals a day, 2 T-shirts (required to
identify you during the whole trip) and a $150 fee
to buy medications and supplies for the mission.
Restaurant meals are not covered (you will have to
pay for one lunch during a city tour on the first
accept donations to purchase medications and toys
for the kids to take with us. In previous years we
were blessed with thousands of pounds of medicines
we received from direct donations or we bought
thanks to cash donations. All donations in the US
are tax deductible (CLM Inc is a 501c3 institution).
