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!
