COVID-19 Pandemic in Peru - send medical supplies


This project will provide direct medical assistance for doctors and nurse in hospitals and clinics throughout Peru. The confirmed cases of infection are growing rapidly, We are in a position to accelerate our shipments - preparing 2 containers stuffed with donated medical equipment and supplies to ship to Lima in less than 2 weeks + we have shipments just arriving there now and forsee a longterm need.

The Peruvian government declared a national state of emergency on March 15, 2020. Under the state of emergency, Peru enacted 15 days of mandatory quarantine, March 16, 2020. Then closed all international borders (land, air, and maritime) and suspended all interprovincial travel within Peru (land, air, and river) in an effort to contain the COVID- 19 outbreak which is growing rapidly.


VIDA USA is immediately shipping 2 containers loaded with donated medical supplies and equipment by sea. Fortunately our typical year round support has two shipments arriving in the Callao port shortly. Plus we will continue to ship long term.

Long-Term Impact

We are in place in Peru - 90 clinics - over 30 years - we are well suited to be effective now and for another 30 years.
