VIDA’s Local and international Programs

Disaster Relief

Through a network of military, doctors, nurses, and medical facilities, VIDA is able to distribute medicine and medical supplies to the most remote areas in a short period of time. See our project on

Medical Supply Aid

Thousands of tons of medical supplies and equipment go to waste every year in the U.S. In cooperation with over two hundred Bay Area medical facilities, VIDA diverts tons of unused medical supplies from local landfills to sorted containers sent South to save lives in Latin America. See our local project on

Medical Professionals from the US, France, and Canada travel to Latin America to treat patients as well as provide practical instruction in: respiratory therapy, reconstructive surgery, dermatology, anasthesia, endichronology, gynecology, and cardiology among others.

Puente de VIDA

Designed to address the primary health care needs of low-income communities throughout Peru, this program organizes groups of volunteer doctors to provide free medical consultations, basic nutrition and pre-natal care. Monthly visits assure follow-up healthcare.

Milagro de VIDA

The HIV virus is infecting children in Latin America at an alarming rate, many by their own mother’s milk. VIDA provides infant formula to mothers with HIV and programs that encourage high school students to learn about HIV causes and effects. See how you can provide these young women with medical relief.
