Update to Earthquake releif

Medical relief has doubled since first reported in August. See photos from VIDA team in Pisco.

In response to the catastrophic 8.0-magnitude earthquake that rocked Pisco, Peru on August 15, VIDA delivered substantial emergency relief efficiently and effectively. Our sister organization VIDA-Peru responded immediately, rushing previously-sent medical supplies to the region. Our first airlift carrier then distributed $2.8 million in medical aid to the most devastated settlements and villages of the region. VIDA also developed a new partnership with Operation USA to cooperatively send further relief to victims of the quake.
