Program Director, In-Kind Donations

As Director of In-Kind Donations, Ms. Heraud's primary role is to solicit and receive in-kind donations, including tools and medical and dental equipment that benefit health facilities and vocational training schools in Latin America and the Caribbean thanks to the support from the U.S. Government and other partners.

Ms. Heraud first joined PADF in 1986.  In 2002, she went to work at the Salesian Mission Office for International Programs in Arlington, Virginia, and later returned to PADF in 2006. While at PADF she has also managed the In-Kind aspects of the Foundation's Disaster Relief Program, mobilizing donations to assist the victims of disasters in Peru, Haiti and Chile, El Salvador and Guatemala.  

Under her leadership, the In-Kind Donations Program has experienced a significant increase of available equipment and tools for donations. More than 2 million people in the Latin American and Caribbean region have benefited from this program.
