On the heels of four ocean containers and one airlift carrying over $5 million in aid to Lima, VIDA is shipping out three containers of medical supplies and two air shipments of medicine to Lima. The three containers are filled to capacity with hospital beds, baby cribs, wheelchairs, surgical kits along with thousands of boxes of much needed medical supplies. Included in the shipment is a very generous donation from UCSF Benieoff Children”s Hospital which has opened a new hospital in San Francisco. UCSF is donating all of the equipment and supplies housed in the old hospital to VIDA.
These donations will be distributed to over 20 clinics and hospitals including programs that work with patients suffering from HIV. This donation will benefit tens of thousands of patients who are too poor to be able to receive medical treatment. La Comunidad de Ninos Sagrada Familia in Ventanilla, Peru is receiving one of the containers and will receive a portion of the medicine. This orphanage houses and educates over 800 children ranging in age from birth to 16 years old.
VIDA is working hard to surpass our 28 shipments to Peru in 2014 and have set a goal of 32 shipments in 2015. This incredible program would not be possible without your support!
