E xotic and captivating..... full of life that’s yet to be known. Intense greenery, sounds of the wild, abundant rivers that are full of mystery. That’s the Amazon Rainforest! Leafy, challenging, and intimidating.... but not for hundreds of kids who walk through it as if there wasn’t any danger around them. Maybe it’s because they don’t fear anything... or maybe it’s because life is a constant challenge as is their daily survival. Every year, the Smiles team of medical volunteers, dentists, psychologists, teachers, social workers, youth, adolescents and adults.... in all, so many people stay in the Amazon to visit dozens of communities lost among the rivers, trees and isolation. We play with them and share time, stories, hugs and care.... motivate their efforts, their will to live, to keep going despite all the challenges. We help with school supplies, basic food, clothes and programs that help Improve the quality of life. At Camp Smiles, around 200 children participate annually in this event which include the best student from the public schools among the rivers. Additionally, thousands of families (1200 in 2017) benefit from professional visitors and volunteers who bring food, basic medical assistance, and education programs to their own communities in the middle of Amazonian affluence. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of the team that draws smiles in the Amazon.
