Upcoming Medical Campaign Dates:

April 21-27, 2018

SELVA IN ACTION (SIA), led by Medical Director Dr. Luis A. Espinoza, is a volunteer medical, educational, and empowerment project that provides assistance to villagers living along the Rio Momón in the Amazon jungle, a short distance from the city of Iquitos, Perú. According to the Peruvian government, the Rio Momón has been declared an area of extreme poverty.Extreme poverty is defined as having so little income that if every cent were spent on food, there would not be sufficient food to provide adequate nutrition.

Making It All Happen: As a result of project evolution and expansion, the SIA team has now joined forces with health posts (posta medica) in the villages of Centro Fuerte, Sargento Lores, and Punto Alegre, where we have the potential of serving more than 800 villagers. Accessible only by boat, the people who live along the Rio Momón consider themselves “the forgotten ones.”

SIA welcomes all medical and non-medical volunteers who have a willing heawrt and hleping hands. To joinus, or for more information, please contact:
