VIDA is establishing a foothold in Haiti. VIDA will be making its second shipment to St. Damien Pediatric Hospital that provides free healthcare to Haiti’s poorest children. St. Damien performs advanced medical care from cancer treatment to surgeries for children who would otherwise die. The container is sponsored by our shipping partner Otis McAllister and is carrying 12 pallets of medical supplies and equipment including patient gowns, surgical gowns, exam gloves, diapers, and exam tables donated by Stanford Hospital. The shipment also contains 50,000 face masks donated by CVS Pharmacy.
VIDA is also continuing our support for a project in Cayes Jacmel, managed by Haitian born physician, Alix J.Magloir. Dr. Alix has been providing critical care to thousands residents with the aid of VIDA. Dr. Magloire works with a team of doctors and volunteers who provide care and help transport the donated supplies to remote communities surrounding Cayes Jacmel.
VIDA thank are Global Giving donors for their generous support and making our work in Haiti possible.
