Journeys to the nearest dental posts in remote areas of the Peruvian Amazon can often take many days. Vine Trust endeavours to bring vital dental care interventions to these communities via our medical ships. This gift will enable Vine Trust to continue delivering dental care and dental health education to these remote communities.
Mother and Child Services
The average midwife in remote Amazonian communities is expected to treat patients over a 1,800 km area. This means that many communities are left with little or no access to vital healthcare for both mother and child. This gift will enable our medical vessels, with trained midwives on board, to continue providing a whole range of mother and child services, bringing hope to communities on the Amazon.
Reaching Remote Communities
In the Loreto region of Peru, isolated Amazonian communities live with little or no access to vital healthcare. Vine Trust’s medical vessels have innovated the delivery of regular primary health care, bringing hope to these communities. This gift will enable Vine Trust to continue providing over 200,000 medical consultations, free of charge, every year.
