Christian Life Movement (CLM) &
Solidaridad en Marcha
We are a Catholic mission that organizes groups of
doctors, nurses and volunteers who travel yearly to
Lima, Peru, from the US (Miami, Denver and other
main US cities) and Canada. People from other faiths
and believes are welcome to participate.
Our primary goal is to provide basic medical care to
Pamplona Alta, a very poor population 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 other
local volunteers and doctors from the local
Christian Life Movement (CLM) Peruvian organization
called “Solidaridad en Marcha”, who help us,
coordinate and organize these missions.
We are planning our 12th Medical Mission Trip to
Peru. Last year, our 3 medical missions to Peru
helped thousands of people by providing medical care
to their 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 13th to 18th, 2014.
have had such an overwhelming interest in our
upcoming mission to Peru. All who have attended the
Peru Medical Mission in the past will be given
priority as well as anyone that has specific
technical and/or logistical skills helpful to the
execution of our mission. We are still in need of
Doctors (IM, GP/FP, GYN, Pediatrics, Dermatologists,
Podiatrists, Surgeons, Dentists, etc.) ARNP’s, PA’s,
Pharmacists, Paramedics and Nurses.
In an effort to ensure the smoothest possible
execution of all the mission tasks, we will be
holding 3 meetings before February 2014 in Miami,
Denver and Toronto before departure.
We will be flying on LAN Peru from Miami to Lima
(flights will be coordinated appropriately 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 together with us.
The main group will be departing Miami on February
12th at approximately 6 pm and will be returning
from Lima February 18th at approximately 7pm. Right
now the Miami-Lima-Miami fare is $700 (group price).
We are requiring that everyone that attends the
mission must fly in and out on the same flights. We
realize that some folks may want to use frequent
flyer miles to pay for their tickets on other
airlines or may have other travel plans pre or post
mission. Please be aware that we will NOT be making
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 itinerary.
About Peru: is a relatively safe country; however, we cannot guarantee
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 you choose
to arrive earlier or stay beyond the set mission
Housing & Meals:
We will be staying at a retreat house in Lima. The
cost per person for transportation, lodging, meals,
and 2 T-shirts that will identify you during the
mission days in Peru for the 5 days will be $600.
Restaurant meals are not covered (those usually
consist of 1 group lunch during a city tour on the
first day). Also this amount includes a $150 fee to
buy medications and supplies for the mission.
will be asking everyone to help collect all
donations early this year because we will be sending
the vast majority of the non-monetary donations via
overseas container the first week of January 2014.
Therefore, all donations need to be packed and
inventoried by year end 2013.
accept donations to purchase medications 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). You
