Medical Supplies to Hospitals in Chile

by Volunteers for Interamerican Development Assistance
Feb 7, 2012

January 2012 Report

VIDA is shipping one container carrying over $500,000 in aid in February 2012 to our partner is Chile, Fundacion FEDES (Fundacion Educativa de Desarrollo Económico y Social).  FEDES will be distributing the supplies to the most impoverished  areas of the cities of Santiago, Valparaiso, Talca and Curico (also badly affected by the latest earthquake).  VIDA has arranged the shipping of 6 containers to Chile in 2012 as part of the long-term support of the poor in Chile that were impacted by the earthquake.

All donations will cover the cost of shipping the supplies to Chile.
