For my birthday this year, I would like to raise money to help support Dr Raymond Portelli's cause in helping the people of Iquitos, Peru. Dr Raymond has dedicated the past 24 years of his life as a doctor & priest there
More on Dr Raymond’s work:
He currently runs four homes in Iquitos:
2. He also runs a clinic during the day where patients get their medications for free
3. He also goes on weekly trips to other villages (at times only accessible on a 4-10hr boat ride) with a massive bag of medication to see as many patients as he can before moving on to the next village.
Dr Raymond’s work is not government funded and relies solely on donations. He needs around €300 per day (~€110k per year) to:
All these makes up for most of the running costs and to help keep his work going, Dr Raymond also organised a number of fundraising activities. Dr Raymond has dedicated his life towards helping the people of Iquitos and I felt that this is the least I could do to help his cause so that he can continue to be a blessing to others ❤️
