DONATE to Selva in Action
The next Selva in Action Mission will take place May 4-10, 2024 (information below).
SELVA IN ACTION (SIA), led by Medical Director Dr. Luis A. Espinoza, Dental Director Dr. Arlynn “Sammi” Ráez, and Program Director Anita Soluna, is a volunteer medical, dental, educational, and empowerment program that provides services to villagers living along the Rio Momón in the Amazon jungle, a few hours from the city of Iquitos, Perú.
Our Mission Statement:
- To improve access to medical and dental care.
- To promote wellness.
- To provide educational and empowerment workshops.
- To provide mentorship opportunities for young Peruvian doctors and medical students.
In 2024, SIA will be working with the Peruvian Navy, Army, and Air Force and the municipalities of Maynas and Punchana to serve more than 600 families from 24 villages. During the mission, our volunteers will stay at the beautiful Amazon Garden Ecolodge Boutique.
The villages we serve are only accessible by boat and people who live along the river are considered "the forgotten ones". 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.
SIA welcomes all medical and non-medical volunteers who have a willing heart and helping hands. To join us, or for more information, please reach out to our contacts below.
