The Surgery CENTER

Envisioning a city with greater access to healthcare...

People of Peru Project is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing healthcare, education, and crisis intervention to impoverished families in Peru. Our current goal is to build a hospital/surgery center in Iquitos, a city in the Amazon rainforest of Peru. The hospital will serve over half a million people who currently lack access or resources for adequate medical care.

The project goal is $1 million in order to fund the construction of the hospital. This is a daunting task, but we are committed to achieving this goal. We already own the building and are more than halfway there. We are reaching out to individuals, corporations, and other organizations to assist us in this important work.

The hospital in Iquitos will be a state-of-the-art facility that will provide essential free medical services to the impoverished people in our region. The hospital will be staffed by local medical professionals and will offer a range of services, including  major surgeries, provided by volunteer medical teams, prenatal care and obstetrics, cataract and ophthalmic services, as well as our well established dental facility . The medical center will be equipped with a laboratory and pharmacy, as well as facilities for X-rays and ultrasounds.

In addition to providing essential medical services, the hospital will create job opportunities for local practitioners. People of Peru Project is committed to hiring local staff and utilizing the expertise from volunteer teams from around the world to providing training, ongoing education and ensure that the medical center will continue to provide quality care for years to come.

People of Peru Project is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible. Supporters can choose to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring plan in order to provide ongoing support for the hospital project. The organization also accepts in-kind donations of medical equipment and supplies.


People of Peru Project has made a significant medical impact in the region of Loreto. We have provided free medical and dental services to over 70,000 people in the last 23 years and the construction of the hospital/surgery center will be a major milestone in our efforts to provide essential healthcare services to those who need it most. With the help of generous supporters, we are well on the way to reaching our goal and making this project a reality.

We saw the joy of the 100+ surgeries in our small clinic. We can't wait for thousands of lives to be impacted by access to life-saving care.
