CODE OF ETHICS

It is our position to, first and foremost, respect and preserve the culture of the peoples of the Peruvian Amazon and of all people in Peru.

Understanding that our presence in the villages of Peru will effect change, when faced with decision-making, we will make decisions with as little impact for cultural change as possible.

When bringing new education or information to the people, it will be based on sound principles established by Peruvian standards of health advocated by the Ministerio de Salud in Lima.

We will be good stewards of resources, seeking the most economical methods to obtain our goals of better health or more accessible healthcare for the Peruvian people.

When seeking resources for the organization, we will be honest, presenting our situations and projects to be as clearly understood as possible.

We will honor our donors by acknowledging their gifts with thanks and feedback.

We will work within the laws of the United States and Peru in obtaining and reporting our funding and resources.
