Tucume Medical Mission

Are you a Medical Professional looking for adventure? Join us for a journey through the Valley of the Pyramids in northern Peru. We will spend the first part of the trip working with local doctors providing free medical care for the pueblo of Tucume. The city is excited to have us come and they have offered an area of their museum as the site for the clinic. We will interact and work with Peruvian Medical Professionals to provide services and care for the local people of the community.
On the second part of the trip we will explore the pyramids and ruins of Tucume, Chiclayo and the beach community of Trujillo. We will tour the Tucume Pyramids, visit the Museo “Senor de Sipan”, watch a Pasofino Horse show with local customs and dance and explore the beautiful town of Trujillo.
