Mission: VIDA was founded in 1991 in Northern California as a response to the cholera epidemic that afflicted Peru. As a result of poor sanitary and inadequate health conditions, cholera rapidly spread to other countries in South America. After learning about the crisis, a group of concerned San Francisco Bay Area residents, both American and Latin American, collected $2 million worth of medical supplies which were promptly shipped to the affected regions. VIDA has since extended its efforts throughout the Americas: its health assistance has reached over 2 million people in hundreds of remote and economically depressed communities in Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru.
