The Peruvian American Medical Society Auxiliary (PAMS Auxiliary) was organized on July 4, 1984 at the 11th Annual Convention of PAMS in Arequipa, Peru. It exists to assist in achieving the goals of PAMS and to sponsor projects that will improve the health and quality of life for Peruvian citizens.
Membership is open to all spouses of PAMS members. The Annual Meeting of Auxiliary takes place during the PAMS Convention.
During the past few years Auxiliary has been focusing on the need of orphans to be able to lead productive lives. At the age of 18, according to the law, orphans can no longer live in state orphanages and often end up on the streets. The CASA Committee (Comité de Asistencia Social y Apoyo) was proposed and approved at the 2009 Ica Convention with the responsibility to develop a plan to encourage responsibility, independence, and skills for a self-sufficient life style once an orphan becomes of age.
The current focus is to assist those that have demonstrated a desire for further education, trade or professional, not only with funds, but with an accountable support system for safe daily living.
The following projects are underway and we would love to have your support. If you are interested in knowing more about one of the projects please contact the designated Auxiliary Member. Donations for Auxiliary Projects should be submitted to the Auxiliary Endowment Fund with specific designation.
