VIDA has had a record year in Peru. To date, VIDA has shipped 28 containers carrying over $32 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 has already sent 345 beds in 2018 along with 200 gurneys and 150 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.
A major cost in this project is the ocean freight from Oakland to Callao.Global Giving donors play an important role in making these shipments possible.The people of Peru and VIDA thank you for your continued generosity. We look forward to building upon our great success in 2019.
