Medical Supplies for Hospitals in Haiti

30 full pallets sent to Haiti today!

Our dedicated staff and local volunteers have spent the first week post the earthquake collecting, sorting and stacking donated medical supplies - delivering today - MLK DAY - the first 30 pallets destined for Haiti.

An approximate estimate of $550,000 value of the surgical supplies the doctors and nurses are so desperately in need of.

THANK YOU volunteers - your energy is amazing. Here on this sixth day we are hearing of survivors being pulled from the rubble. Our hearts and hopes go out to all those in Haiti - survivors and volunteers!

And a HUGE thank you to over 160 Global Giving philanthropists who have given to VIDA so far! Please feel free to give us feedback!
