Hospital Bed and Equipment placed in Lima Hospital
VIDA is excited to announce that Peru's Ministry of Health has entered into a partnership with VIDA to facilitate the customs clearance and in country distribution of medical equipment and medical supplies to the poorest communities in the greater Lima area. This partnership is reducing the international shipping costs by 40% and will eliminate all costs for shipping inside Peru. This means that your support will help more people than ever before. This develoment along with the increase in donations from hospitals accross California will enable VIDA to ship a record number of containers to Peru in 2018. This is a very important development as the cost of transporting aid is very high and limits VIDA's capacity to send more aid. As this report is being written, there are two containers currently on the water. Thank you for your continued generosity!
