You can help


The impoverished people of the Amazon desperately need your help. Your donation will help purchase medicine and supplies, hold clinics, provide for essential needs, and make sustainable improvements in this remote corner of the world where the poor are too often forgotten.

When you help a sick child or sick adult, you bring joy and hope, and you enable that adult to work and try to climb above the economic, social and emotional stress their family faces each day.

Touching the Lives of thousands
in need!

4 Amazon Promise is a U.S.-based, non-profit organization founded 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 villages.  Programs to install rainwater catchment and composting toilet systems in the remote communities we serve 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.

Located adjacent to Iquitos, Belén is a sprawling river community of some 74,000 people who lack the most basic amenities required for human health. Outdoor defecation, piles of rotting trash and drinking water contamination are rife. Most children are malnourished. Living conditions are beyond comprehension. The prevalence of many diseases is extremely high. Maternal and infant mortality rates are also high.
