Share the love of Jesus by tending to the educational, medical, and spiritual needs of the local people.
AMOR Projects, Ambassadors Medical Outreach & Relief, is a non-profit missionary clinic in Pucallpa, Peru. It consists of a group of locals, medical professionals, and volunteers who bring medical, dental, educational, and spiritual health to the people there. Their headquarters are located about 8 kilometers away from the city of Pucallpa. They also have an outreach post 38 kilometers away that focuses on farming and a little medical outreach. As you get farther away from Pucallpa, it gets more rural and looks more like a jungle.

Volunteers are responsible for their own food. There are two nice grocery stores inside plazas (malls) in downtown Pucallpa, about a 30 minute drive away, and 2-3 markets 5 to 15 minutes away. The grocery stores have more American options but not everything. It is nearly impossible to find peanut butter and other specific brand name foods and drinks. The local markets have cheap fruits, vegetables, plantains, rice, beans, etc.
Volunteers are provided housing in a concrete courtyard style dorm (one story) with rooms all the way around. Each room has a bunk bed with mattresses and mosquito nets, a desk, a book case, a light, and a fan. It's decently comfortable. The bathrooms are concrete stalls and there are some toilet stalls and some shower stalls. There is no hot water.
