We are Peruvian and American health care professionals and volunteers from Illinois who take medical missions to Peru. We provide free care to different villages with little or no access to medical facility. Please help our cause by donating to IL PAMS.

IL PAMS is the Illinois chapter of the Peruvian American Medical Society (PAMS). Founded in 1973 as a Voluntary Nonprofit Organization, PAMS aims to obtain and donate health resources to underserved populations in Peru.

PAMS works in concert with public and private agencies and institutions in the US and Peru to provide medical and educational assistance to our population in need. Members have organized medical missions to more than 25 different towns and cities throughout Peru. You can help us by volunteering for a mission, a monetary donation, or donating equipment in working condition, supplies and none-expired medicines.

Both PAMS and IL PAMS are certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Donations you make are tax deductible to the exempt to the law. At this time ILPAMS is working in tandem with PAMS to provide IMMEDIATE RELIEF to the numerous areas affected in Peru by the disaster created by heavy raining. mudslides and flooding due to March 20, 2017 “El Niño” phenomenon.

If you are sympathetic to our cause, kindly consider helping us to bring medical attention to those in need. Your participation will make a difference!



Our country of Peru has faced one of the worst natural disasters in the last 30 years. All the country has been affected by heavy rains, flooding and “huaicos” (mudslides from the mountains). The Coast of Peru was the most affected region with destroyed houses, interrupted electrical and drinking water services, collapsed sewage systems and shortages of many products due to damaged transportation and communication networks.
We are calling for collaboration to help these people in urgent need. Your participation in the ILPAMS 5K 2017 and/or donation will serve to confront the emergency by providing:
1. Medicine and free medical care.
2. Food and water
3. Some tools for the removal of debris.

The Illinois Peruvian American Medical Society will be managing and sending your donations to different regions of Peru in coordination with local Peruvian doctors working at health facilities. Your participation will be appreciated by the people of these regions in great need.
