Volunteers Around the World in Peru 2019

Our non-governmental organization is dedicated to provide free medication, and medical care to locals in Albania, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Panama, Peru, etc.

This organization will be of great help, as it will not only aid our BMED students gain necessary skills for their future but those who are in need. The goal is to raise the amount of money needed to cover all expenses and medications that will be taken to a third world country. This Summer 2019 they visited Peru.
