Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Mission:
    Peruvian American Medical Society Endowment Fund is a nonprofit organization created to unite Peruvians and citizens of the U.S. and other countries to improve medical, cultural and educational collaboration for the benefit of Peruvians residing in Peru.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Vision:
    We achieve our mission by organizing regular educational and medical services supported by philanthropy and professional volunteerism, in collaboration with recognized organizations in Peru, the U.S. and other countries.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Members lead medical and educational missions to Peru along with other volunteers, supporting these missions with their time and money. Alumni from Peruvian medical schools raise funds to support their schools with facility upgrades, equipment and subscriptions to medical journals.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We average 20 medical missions a year and educational symposiums are given in medical schools throughout the country.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have built a medical and educational center in Chincha, Peru. A member has built a medical center in Yantalo, another member has built a medical and educational community center in Collique. Specialty missions focused on cleft palate surgeries and eye surgeries are organized to remote parts of the country including deep in the jungle. Burn Units have been built in Arequipa, Cusco and Iquitos; Renal Units have been built in Lima and Cusco, and a Cardiovascular Surgery Unit has been built in Lima, Peru. Volunteers from medical schools in USA come on these missions to teach basic healthcare and prevention.
