Share the love of Jesus by tending to the educational, medical, and church 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 min drive away and 2-3 markets 5 to 15 min away. The grocery stores have more American options but not everything. It's pretty much impossible to find peanut butter and other specific brand name foods & drinks. The local markets have super 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.
