Medical Mission

The Medical Mission Committee of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish (Tenafly, NJ)  is a partnership of physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals as well as lay volunteers, supported by the the parish in general, who wish to share their medical talents and their capacity for spiritual support with people in areas of need. The overarching goal is to identify and to help meet the medical needs of the under served through medical mission trips of limited duration but with a mindset to providing sustainable medical solutions.

Our volunteers will work as a team to treat  local residents with professional care and human empathy and respect and will, in return, learn from them about the local culture and customs.

Our initial week-long trip was in October, 2018 to Jose Galvez, an area on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. Once again we are planning to return to Jose Galvez sometime in the Fall of 2019, medical care will be supplemented by medical education and, in warranted cases, referrals to local medical facilities or physicians for ongoing care. If you are interested in donating or have any questions please contact or

In spring of 2017 four members of the Medical Mission team traveled to various locations in Peru to scout a possible fall 2018 trip there. Check out the photos below of their experience and read team member Rosemary Russell’s report from the scouting trip HERE.
