Healing Peru was established in 2007 by Dr. Nicholas and Kristy Seeliger. After visiting the beautiful village of Kristy's grandmother, Andajuaylillas, they felt called to dedicate themselves to improve the quality of life of the families living in this inspiring Andean village. With the help of many their dream remains alive.
Through the collaborative efforts of the Peruvian based non-profit organization The Q’ewar Project, The Cusco Region Ministry of Health, The Jesuit Volunteer Corps, The Eglin Air Force Base Family Medicine Residency Program, the Tulane University School of Medicine, and now the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans – Healing Peru continues to grow and expand it’s reach to help those who are most in need.
With our growing relationship with the American medical academic community Healing Peru is also able to prepare and inspire tomorrows doctors to serve not just in Peru but in similar villages around the world!
