$1.5 million of Aid arrives in Cuzco!

Cuzco

We are excited to announce that VIDA shipped $1.5 million in aid to our projects in Cuzco Peru in April 2013.  A portion of these donations benefited our new partner clinic in Cuzco called Policlinico Belen, operated my nuns who are caring for single mothers and orphans.  This project is also supported by doctors affiliated with USCF Medical School who visit the site two times a year as well as hundreds of boxes of medical supplies.  VIDA has equipped the clinic with 20 hospital beds, 6 exam tables and other needed equipment and supplies.  VIDA is re-supplying the clinic twice a year.

 In addition VIDA is launching a new initiative that will benefit impoverished individuals who work in the Alpaca industry.  The program is a collaboration between VIDA and alpaca designers KUNA (www.kuna.com.pe) and The Sandra Jordan Collection (www.sandrajordan.com) along with Napa Valley’s first lady of the wine industry Margrit Mondavi.  A fundraising event will be held at the Mondavi Winery in October 2013.

 It is your generous support that makes these projects possible.  VIDA remains a responsible steward of your generosity by shipping $175 of aid for every $1 donated in 2012.   All donations will go to covering the cost of shipments.  Thank you for making our mission possible this year and in the future!
