Lodging, Meals, Surgical Project Supplies
VER arranges for all lodging, meals, local transportation, and surgical project supplies via SEE International, equipment, and surgical facilities during your volunteer service. Lodging will be arranged locally. Upon registering for the Peru project, volunteers receive a complete “Welcome and Orientation Packet” to prepare and plan for the trip. An optional excursion to Machu Picchu and Cuzco is being arranged for those who are able to stay a few extra days after the surgical project.
VER is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that relies on donations to fund our sight restoring projects. The volunteer participation fee for the Peru project is $1,250 for physicians and $750 for all other volunteers. Volunteers also provide their own roundtrip airfare from their home city to the closest airport to the worksite in Peru and emergency medical/evacuation insurance. Airfare, medical insurance, and the volunteer participation fee are considered donations and tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please consult your tax professional for details. VER provides a donation receipt as required by the IRS.
