The McGill South America Health Initiative (MSAHI) offers many projects for the upcoming summer such as 4 weeks or more of volunteering at the Hogar San Pedro, working in an orphanage in Lima and/or volunteering with the organization Awaiting Angel to do a broad variety of projects such as working in a hospital, being a teacher’s assistant, rebuilding houses, etc. All these will be happening in Peru! Yes, the wonderful country where the Machu Picchu is!!!! How amazing is that? These projects can last from 2 weeks to a whole summer. In other words, it is very easy to adapt to what YOU want, so no reason not to come!
