Project Report | Aug 11, 2016
$3 million in Medicine Arrives in Lima

By Adam See | Executive Director

VIDA USA airlifted over $3 million in donated medicine to projects in the greater Lima area.  The shipment concentrated primarily on antibiotics as access to safe drinking water remains a challenge in the poorest districts of Peru.  Due to the large donation that will benefit over 25,000 patients, VIDA is collaborating with the Ministry of Health who has an extensive network of clinics and hospitals that serve Peru's poorest citizens.  In addition VIDA will be sending the medication to over two dozen of our partner clinics and hospitals.  VIDA is also supplying doctors and nurses who volunteer with our Puente de Vida program that brings healthcare to some of Peru's hardest to reach regions as well as to the growing communities located on the barren mountains ringing Lima.  It is estimated that nearly 500,000 people live in make-shift shelters made out of discarded cardboard, plywood and/or sheet metal and have no running water in the communities surrounding Lima.

VIDA recently served over 500 people in one day though Puente de Vida in upper Pamplona.  VIDA is also preparing two new containers of medical supplies and equipment that will be on the water in late August. 

We thank all of our donors for making our mission possible.
