VIDA is currently preparing two shipment to Chile in November.  The first will be sent to FEDES, who will distriubte $500,000 in medical supplies and equipment to the hospitals and clinics operating in the impoverished suburbs of Santiago.  The second shipment will be sent to programs operated by our partner Children Family Health throughout Chile.  These programs primarly focus on children and mothers.  VIDA is continuing to develop a program that will support clinics located in the rural regions of Chile that currently have limited access to healthcare for people living in poverty.
