indigenous people many of whom have no other access to health care
continue to receive desperately needed medical attention.
Expeditions are two weeks long and depart four times a year from Miami,

own travel expenses, or find a sponsor. Currently, trip expenses run $2,395

a $100 tax in Peru. There is information on the web site about raising
funds to finance your trip.
