•A Short Mission

Our most recent mission led by Dr. Annibal Pepper accompanied by his wife Anita, and two American school teachers from Frankfort Elementary School. This 10 day mission was, "very short, but very fruitful”.In Arequipa the surgery Department of Hospital Honorio Delgado is still in Emergency with an operating room functioning to only cover “emergencies”. However, the Burns Unit, with our own operating room and everything necessary works normally, thanks to the permanent help of ILPAMS, Dr. Pepper was able to give USD5,000. As well as a box of Dermacarrier generously donated by plastic surgeon, Dr. Rick Green. “The Burn Unit of the Regional Hospital continues with its degree of excellence and serves patients from the entire macro region of Southern Peru”. In Cusco, Dr. Pepper worked and gave a donation sent by Dr. Lleni Pahs of her fund with PAMS National.

•The Next Generation

The teachers who accompanied Dr. Pepper and his wife Ann, were from Frankfort elementary which has recently become a “sister” school to Elohim school in Arequipa. With the students becoming penpals with one another and the teachers volunteering it is a way to integrate our world and break down barriers and preconceived notions through the collide of cultures of our future. Elohim school is located in a poor neighborhood of Arequipa. This mission Ann and the other two teachers along with monetary aid to implement two years of secondary technical and vocational special instruction. For boys, plumbing and carpentry, and for girls there is sewing and cosmetology made available through the donation of 3 electric machines and the work of our mission associates. The library created in previous years is now equipped with over 600 books as well as everything need such as toilets and cuisine to provide breakfast and lunch to 230 children. The 6th grade children of Frankfort sent letters as well as $275USD that is going towards boards for a basketball court.
