Hello wonderful supporters of VIDA!

We thank you for the past support and the future as we continue to aid suburbs of Santago in collaboration with our local partner FEDES.

We work with a variety of local hospitals and small clinics - providing hospital beds, exam tables and other much needed equipment and supplies. We partner with the FEDES foundation to distribute the supplies where needed most to benefit thousands of families in the region all year long.

A specific need is wheelchairs - so we pack the containers with walkers, crutches and wheelchairs each time.

Thank you for making this unique and impactful meidcal relief program possible through your donations.

Please consider providing monthly donations - even $10 a month goes along way in our various programs. A typical morning coffee and muffin is equal $1,000 in supplies sent to a clinic in need this year. Consider committing one of your mornings to our cause.

 

thank you

VIDA prepares for first shipment to Chile

VIDA is preparing to send our first container to our Chilean partner FEDES in January 2016.  The first container will carry medical supplies and equipment to benefit the numerous clinics in the suburbs of Santiago.  These clinics serve some of the poorest people in the country.  The value of the shipment will exceed $500,000 and included surgical kits, exam tables, hospital beds and  gurneys.

This project will biuld on the success of VIDA's earlier efforts that shipped over $10 million in aid as a result of the devestating earthquake in 2012. This donation will be targeting impoverished orphanges and schools who offer the most efficent channel of distrubtion to a large number of beneficiaries.  

VIDA and FEDES are planning another shipment of medical supplies in March 2016.
