Haiti is Not Forgotten!

Hello Haiti supporters!
We are thrilled and grateful to report on our progress due to your financial support!
VIDA is collaborating with others to ensure that Haiti is not forgotten. VIDA continues to send additional aid to our project in Cayes Jacmel which is still reeling from the effects of the devastating earthquake. Our July 2012 shipment of $100,000 in children's clothing donated by Gymboree Corporation has cleared customs and is ready to be distributed in November. We shipped another $100,000 in Gymboree clothing in October 2012 which is due to arrive in late November. This shipment also contained a donation of 125 musical instruments to benefit the development of a youth orchestra and marching band.
VIDA has sent another shipment of basic medical supplies to the Cayes Jacmel clinic that is visited by a medical team led by Haitian born physician, Alix J.Magloir. Dr. Alix and his team have been providing critical care to tens of thousands residents with the aid of VIDA. This shipment included over $75,000 in respiratory supplies.
VIDA's work in Cayes Jacmel is an example of responding to the needs of the community and taking advantage of the limited import opportunities due to customs restrictions. This approach leverages our capacity to efficiently redirect surplus supplies in the United States to people in need in developing countries.
Thank You! All of you combined have enabled VIDA to send $150 in aid for every $1 donated.
