2013 Mission to Peru

Quechua Benefit 2013 Mission to Peru

Thirty-one members of the 2013 Quechua Benefit mission traveled to six towns in the Colca Valley on a rotating basis and they inaugurated the Snowmass Health Center with 6 days of continuous operation. They were accompanied by three Peruvian doctors and dentists.

Patients were brought to the Snowmass clinic on a daily basis by the mayors from four additional towns. In total 10 towns were served with medical and dental care. A total of 1450 patients were cared for: all of the services were provided for free.

The response to the opening of the Snowmass clinic was overwhelming and the fact that 864 patients were served in the clinic alone will go a long way to establishing the Quechua Benefit mission on a permanent basis in the minds of the Quechua people in the valley.

None of this could have bee accomplished without you generous donations.

Dr. Dwight Bailey led this year’s teams. They were each part of an advance team that left several days early to prepare the Snow Mass clinic for opening. The following Americans team members rounded out the United States team: Richard Miller, Dr Rhonda Deschner, Bill Beranek, Mario Garcia, Dr Jim Anderson, Shellie Clarke RN, Dr Jim Gallagher, —–. The Peruvian team was made up of Quechua Benefits manager in Peru Alejandro Tejada, Executive Secretary Carla Villanueva and the Casa Chapi professional team Wendy and Karen.
