To date, PaM Canada has shipped over $50,000 worth of donated medical supplies and equipment to Máncora.
In partnership with the Peruvian Red Cross, National Office in Lima, PaM Canada shipped in a 20' container loaded with donations
from Toronto-area hospitals and medical charities; these supplies and equipment helped us open Máncora's first free and pay-what-you-can medical clinic.
PaM is also generously supported by Not Just Tourists Toronto, who supply our Canadian volunteers and other travellers to Peru with supplementary suitcases of medical donations.
Any volunteers or travellers to Peru coming via Toronto, and willing to bring with them a suitcase of donations for our medical clinic, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our representatives in Lima can meet you and arrange to have the donations shipped to Máncora, or if travelling our way, you are welcome to visit Máncora and deliver the donations in person. Please see the Not Just Tourists Toronto website for more details.
