Volunteers for Inter-American Development (VIDA) provides assistance to health institutions and development projects that support people in need in Latin America, regardless of race, religion, or politics. VIDA was founded in response to the cholera epidemic that broke out in Peru in early 1991, and due to inadequate health care and poor sanitary conditions, quickly spread to neighboring Latin American Countries. Since that time, VIDA has extended its efforts throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, shipping over 152 ocean containers carrying more than $114 million worth of medical aid to Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru.
