Global Giving is matching donations on June 15th!

This month, June 2011,  VIDA is currently supporting a medical team headed by Haitian born physician, Alix J.Magloire who is the Chief of Medicine at the Oakland Veterans Administration Clinic. Dr. Magloire, and two other Haitian born physicians will spend fifteen days at a healthcare center in Cayes Jacmal. The clinic has eight observation beds, urgent care unit, and six operating rooms. They are treating people for infectious diseases such as malaria, gastro intestinal disease, cardiac, metabolic diseases and orthopedic issues. Infectious diseases run rampant due to poor infrastructure and clean water.

VIDA has provided multiple small shipments of equipment that the doctors bring with them on their visit. Shipments have included several endoscopy, ultrasound, anesthesia, ECG and dialysis machines.

GlobalGiving’s second Bonus Day of the year is coming up and this gives donors a chance to magnify their support!  On June 15th, GlobalGiving.org will be matching all donations at 30% up to $1,000 per donor per project while funds last. There will be $75,000 available in matching funds.

Please help us support our work in Haiti by donating on June 15!

Thank you!
