VIDA thanks GlobalGiving donors for your support! VIDA has made a total of nine shipments (ocean and air) carrying nearly $10 million in aid in response to the tragic flooding.  800,000 homeless, 300 plus hospitals/clinics destroyed and the infrastructure is devastated - roads and bridges washed out and entire communities swept clean.

VIDA is working with our partners and the government to help rebuild the healthcare infrastructure.   The government is dedicating transportation resources to transport the aid to the impacted communities and we are ramping up our efforts.

To that end, VIDA is making 12 additonal shipments by sea and air to Peru over the next 12 weeks.  To that end, we are excited to announce that the first of four containers has left the VIDA warehouse carrying $500,000 in aid!

We are in the process of securing funding for the next 8 containers and appreciate the support of the GlobalGiving community!

We Need Your Help!

Recent floods in Peru have directed several shipments to aid in the immediate crisis. Yet our support continues in Chile with container shipments to our local partner FEDES. FEDES then distributes the supplies to points of need throughout the country. VIDA is preparing an additional shipment of emergency medical aid, all items specifically requested by FEDES, but WE NEED YOUR HELP!

VIDA needs to not only pay for the ocean freight, but we need to help FEDES pay for custom fees in Chile and in country distribution costs.  VIDA is focusing on two FEDES projects - Villa de Ancianos Padre Alberto Hurtado Foundation a non -profit that hosts more than 200 elderly people that are either homeless or abandoned. The second is a collaboration with healthcare providers in the District of San Bernardo which provides care to some of Chile’s most impoverished citizens.

VIDA can make these shipments possible for $2,500 due to a matching gift.  Thank you for your generosity.

VIDA thanks GlobalGiving donors for your support! The VIDA team returned from Peru and was able to help unload three shipments.  These three shipments will be benefitting the flood victims throughout Peru. VIDA has made a total of nine shipments (ocean and air) carrying nearly $10 million in aid. The VIDA team was able to visit a couple of the regions and needless to say it was tragic.  800,000 homeless, 300 plus hospitals/clinics destroyed and the infrastructure is devastated - roads and bridges washed out and entire communities swept clean.

VIDA is working with our partners and the government to help rebuild the healthcare infrastructure.   The government is dedicating transportation resources to transport the aid to the impacted communities and we are ramping up our efforts.

To that end, VIDA would be making 12 additonal shipments by sea and air to Peru over the next 12 weeks.  To that end, we are excited to announce that 3 containers will be leaving the VIDA warehouse over the next three weeks carrying millions of dollars in aid!

We are in the process of securing funding for the next 9 containers and appreciate the support of the GlobalGiving community!
