VIDA closed out 2019 with another great year. VIDA made 24 shipments carrying over $22 million in aid. Many of these shipments represent a new partnership being led by Peru’s Ministry of Health who is spearheading an effort to upgrade and increase the number of beds available in Peru's hospital system. To that end, VIDA sent over 300 beds in 2019 along with 135 gurneys and 250 exam tables. Of course, this is in addition to the hundreds of pallets of medical supplies and hospital equipment that VIDA sends every year to Peru. 2020 looks to be another strong year as we already have shipped 4 containers carrying 160 ICU hospital beds along with hundreds of walkers and crutches as well as hundred of boxes of medical supplies! We are currently scheduling an additional 2 shipments to close out February..
A major cost in this project is the ocean freight from Oakland to Callao. GlobalGiving donors play an important role in making these shipments possible. We look forward to building upon our great success in 2020.
