Health and Nutrition Center

El Albergue DB Peru


In 2013, a large rustic lodge and 11 hectares were donated to DB Peru in the village of San Pedro by Karen Johnson. The lodge is situated along the lower Napo River and is within traveling distance of many of the communities we serve.

With the help of a grant from the benevolent organization La Asociación de Cónyuges Diplomáticos Acreditados en Perú in Lima, specialty jungle trips have been made to make improvements and repairs.  Because of this DB Peru has opened its very first Eco-Lodge Health and Nutrition Center, El Albergue DB Peru.

Two-Story Structure with

Six Bedrooms

The two-story structure is used for a variety of purposes. The upper floor has 6 bedrooms providing space for volunteers and researchers who are staying in the jungle for extended time.

A classroom has been set up for teaching professional classes to midwives and health workers, as well as community programs in dental hygiene, nutrition and other lifestyle practices.

Local community workers are employed in the upkeep and oversight of the lodge. When the lodge is used to for extended stays, local cooks are brought in to prepare meals.
