Peru: VIDA saves lives in Latin America with Bay Area help

PERU (KGO) -- Each week we examine stories that affect people who live and work in the Bay Area.

Sometimes the local charities we focus on have an international impact.

This week, ABC7 News Anchor Cheryl Jennings travels to Peru with Haydee Rodriguez-Pastor, Co-Founder of the nonprofit organization, VIDA USA, based in Emeryville. VIDA just marked 25 years of delivering surplus medical equipment, supplies and medicine to impoverished areas in Latin America.
