Medical Supplies for Hospitals in Haiti

Container Shipment updates thanks to donations

Thanks to our very generous financial and medical supply donors, VIDA responded to the devastating 7. 0 earthquake in Haiti by sending a total of two containers carrying over $1.5 million in medical supplies into the triage system in Port-au-Prince.

The emergency medical supplies and equipments were distributed to numerous field hospitals, operating (but badly damaged) hospitals and clinics, and medical mission teams all of whom were delivering life saving medical care to thousands of Haitians.

VIDA continues to collect donations - both financial and medical for future shipments. Please help us meet our project goals.

As Haiti turns to its long-term rebuilding phase, VIDA is finalizing plans with its partners to help rebuild destroyed hospitals and clinics in the badly damaged Petit Goave region, just west of Port-au-Prince.

Meanwhile the 8.8 earthquake in Chile occurred just weeks after- and our team responded immediately. We have added a Global Giving project for Chile that now needs your help. Please visit the project to see our needs and progress.
