Our next shipment of medical supplies is scheduled to be leaving at the end of  December 2012. This shipment will benefit the Cayes Jacmel Clinic. In addition 40 members of a Church group located in Southern California headed to Haiti earlier this month carrying 80 suitcases of medical supplies on the trip to be distributed to a project in the capital city. Suitcases packed with surgical supplies such as scalpels, and sutures, bandage supplies, surgical wraps, gauze small scissors, forceps, gloves, tongue depressors, sanitizers, blood pressure cuffs, syringes and needles. VIDA has also supplied a 10 person medical team from Stanford Hospital who will be volunteering in the Capital during New Years.  Supplying these three projects couold not be possible without your generous support.  VIDA remains an excellent steward of your generosity as we ship $175 of medical supplies for every $1 donated.  This year alone, VIDA has shipped nearly $40 million in aid to help alleviate the suffering of Latin America's most impoverished citizens. Thank you for making 2012 a record setting year!
