If you¹re inspired to do something for humanity, come join the Rainforest
Health Project on an unforgettable adventure into the heart of the Amazon
jungle. RHP needs medical volunteers ­ doctors, nurses, dentists ­ and
non-medical volunteers to help treat Indian villagers in Peru.

Working in bamboo hut clinics, you can help ensure that hundreds of
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,
Florida. Only the serious need apply, as each volunteer must pay his or her
own travel expenses, or find a sponsor. Currently, trip expenses run $2,395
not including airfare from your home city to Iquitos, Peru. There is
information on the web site about raising funds to finance your trip. 

RHP is a registered non-profit organization based in Minnesota. It has been
taking teams to the Peruvian Amazon since 1993. Can¹t make a trip but still
want to help? RHP also urgently needs drugs, medical equipment, and, of
course, that elusive thing called cash! Donations, and most of your trip
costs, are tax-deductible if you live in the U.S. 

Our web site has articles, slide shows, and lots of information that will
help you see what a trip is like. Please check out the web site at:
