VIDA Supports Medical Team Headed for Peru

By Adam See | Executive Director

15  members of the HRMM medical team from Antioch, California have the hit streets of downtown Lima at the doorsteps of the birthplace of St. Martin Deporres.  The team is comprised of doctors and nurses who will provie care to over one thousand patients at the VIDA project "Casa Hogar.".  

The Team provies basic Internal Medicine and will be focusing on youth and the elderly, as Casa Hogar runs both youth and senior programs.  The team will set up shop right in the street with tents to care in Lima's poorest neighborhoods. The VIDA team faciliated the transportation of over $250,000 in medicine and supplies to be used during the two week mission.  In addition peruvian medical students have joined the mission to hone their skills and learn from physicians and nurses who work at some of the most presitgous medical schools in the United States.  These students are working on a program to establish ongoing care  after the medical team leaves.  

This effort is the result of the hard work of VIDA Peru, HRMM, Peruvian Ministry of Health, San Francisco Consul General of Peru and VIDA USA.
