Project Report | Jul 9, 2015
Millions of Dollars of Aid distributed in Lima!

By Adam See | Executive Director

VIDA Peru warehouse full of inventoried supplies!
VIDA Peru warehouse full of inventoried supplies!

The warehouse is full in Lima! Five containers carrying 50 hospital beds, 75 exam tables, 2,000 walkers and crutches, along with a sundry of other equipment and supplies have arrived in Lima over the past two months.  These donations will be distributed to over 40 clinics and hospitals including programs that work with patients suffering from HIV.  Each of these hospital beds alone have a useful life of over 30 years.  

Sadly, many of these hospitals do not have even beds for their patients to convalesce.  Beds and other equipment are an important donation that honors the dignity of every human being while also improving the morale of healthcare workers who struggle everyday just to provide basic care.  Even access to sterile gloves and gowns makes a huge difference in the lives of the healthcare professionals.  Thank you for making this donation possible.  Also included in the shipment were antibiotics that will help alleviate the immediate suffering of tens of thousands of patients who are fighting infection.  Infections are a systemic problem due to poor sanitation and other risk factors associated with poverty.

We are also excited to announce that VIDA summer intern Gabriella Fleischman will be working in the VIDA Peru warehouse. Gabriella will be working with the Peruvian staff to document in pictures and in words our amazing work.
