Our Origins.

VIDA has been serving underprivileged communities in Latin America since 1991 by providing medicines, medical supplies and equipment donated to VIDA by San Francisco Bay Area hospitals, clinics and individuals. Through such donations we helped to provide care for over 4 million people in under-served communities throughout 12 Latin American and Caribbean countries.

In partnership with other US-based humanitarian non-profits, to date we have shipped over 500 ocean containers of medical relief worth over $500 million. In 2015 VIDA shipped a whopping total of 54 containers. By the end of July 2016, 26 containers have been delivered.
