FIMRC Volunteer Service in Agallpampa

FIMRC’s site in Agallpampa is currently able to accommodate groups of 2-14 volunteers. Volunteer mission trips to Agallpampa generally entail spending half the volunteering time in Agallpampa, with the other half spent in FIMRC’s site in Trujillo. However, if your group is interested in arranging a trip primarily to Agallpampa, we will be glad to accommodate your preference.

Volunteers in Agallpampa assist medical professionals in FIMRC’s partnering primary care clinic, which serves residents of this sprawling rural area. Volunteers also spend time providing health education to schoolchildren in Agallpampa and may also assist in preventative health or vaccination campaigns.
Spanish proficiency is recommended, but not required by FIMRC. However, volunteers may find that any level of Spanish comprehension will enhance interactions with medical staff and patients.

The nature of the volunteer mission to Peru will vary depending on the number of volunteers in each group, the seasonal timing of the mission, the length of the volunteer trip, medical expertise and training, as well as the current needs of the community and clinic.

If you are not part of a group but would like to travel to Peru, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

If you are interested in traveling to Peru for four to eight weeks, please consider our Summer International Health Fellowship Program at our project site in Huancayo. This is an annual program running for month long sessions in June or July to provide an immersive experience to those interested in health professions.
