2012 was an extraordinary year for VIDA as we shipped a record 50 containers carrying nearly $30 million in aid. We have once again witnessed the boundless generosity of people like you who have answered the call to ease the pain and despair of our less fortunate brothers and sisters in Latin America.
For Haiti it a three year anniversary of the earthquake and thereafter rebuilding. Haiti still needs our help.
We currently have five containers of medical supplies, valued at $4 million, sitting in our warehouse ready for shipment to Latin America. Here is where you can help. For every $1 you donate, VIDA is able to send $160 in life-saving medical aid. This is an incredible accomplishment made possible by our dedicated VIDA volunteers, staff, and supporters.VIDA honors the dignity of every individual throughout Latin America, from those living in the Andean communities of Peru, to the shantytowns of Haiti, to the coastal towns of Chile, to the urban centers of Ecuador. We are exceedingly grateful to all of our supporters who have so generously given their time, talents, and treasures to our mission.
Today, we ask you to help us reach our fresh goals for 2013 and bring the gift of LIFE to those in greatest need.
