Lima is Peru’s capital and a modern sprawling city of 10 million inhabitants. MEDLIFE is headquartered in this diverse city, but for reasons beyond why a typical tourist might stop here. MEDLIFE’s work in Lima focuses on the human settlements or “pueblos jóvenes” in the outskirts of Lima, where almost 1 million people live in conditions of extreme poverty. These communities consist of small homes, often made of reed mats or plywood and built into the precarious rocky hillsides around Lima. Most of these communities lack access to basic services like running water and electricity.
On a Service Learning Trip in Lima, you will volunteer at one of our Mobile Clinics to bring free, high-quality healthcare directly to these underserved communities. You will also work on a Development Project like a staircase to help make the community a safer place to live. But perhaps the most important part of your Service Learning Trip is that you will be working hand in hand with local community members, hearing their stories, and making personal connections.
Register today for a Service Learning Trip in Lima to join the Movement for a world free from the constraints of poverty!
