Medical Mission - Cusco Peru


Since 2011 I’ve been involved in a medical campaign partnering with the Iglesia de Cristo there in Cusco and specifically, to help long-term missionaries and friends, Gary and Jen Reaves who reside in Cusco.


Annually, in early March, a team of more than 30 healthcare professionals have congregated to put on a clinic for four days.

Medical Doctors, Optometrists, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Physical Therapists, Nurses and other support personnel deliver care for free, to Peruvians who live in Cusco and many from the surrounding villages.
