VIDA is a non-profit organization providing dual service to both Latin America and Northern California by collecting surplus medical supplies and equipment from health institutions, diverting them from landfills, and shipping them to Latin American hospitals and clinics that rely on such donations for the provision of basic health care.

May 2012 Report

VIDA is continuing to support grassroots efforts to bring medical care to the poorest  areas of Haiti.

In February 2012, VIDA supplied a medical team established  by Haitian born physician, Alix J.Magloire and two other Haitian born physicians who are working at a healthcare center in Cayes Jacmal. Medical teams have been visiting this center for the past two years with the assistance of VIDA. VIDA was also able to supply a group of volunteers who travelled to the center in Cayes Jacmal carrying 20 suitcases of medical supplies.    Aid  included nebulizers, ostomy supplies and surgical kits and other general medical supplies.

VIDA plans to continue and expand its support of medical teams serving Haiti as it represents the most efficient way to send scarce medical supplies to remote regions of Haiti.
