Amazon Promise is a U.S.-based, non-profit organization founded in 1993 to provide desperately needed medical and dental care to remote populations living in the Upper Amazon Basin of Northeastern Peru. Our Peruvian operations are headquartered in the jungle city of Iquitos where we provide medical services, cervical cancer screening and treatment, and health education to its residents and neighboring Belen. Additionally, since 1993 we have conducted routine medical outreach, training, and education in 32 remote Amazonian communities. Programs to install rainwater catchment and composting toilet systems began in 2013. Our volunteers form the backbone of our organization. Both medical, dental and non-medical volunteers work alongside our seasoned American and Peruvian staff to serve the needs of over 5,000 people each year.
