Amazon Hope Working with Indigenous Communities Published: 19 Jan 2022

Dr Ronald Ramirez has sent us a few photos from the first expedition of the year, which has been working with the Shipibo-Conibo and Ashaninka indigenous communities on the Ucayali River. He reports that they have been delighted to receive the ship and the medical services.

As well as the core primary healthcare services, the team will also be providing vaccinations (including COVID-19) and mental health services in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Peruvian NGO, CEDRO.

This extended expedition will continue until the 17th of February, visiting many new communities for the first time.
