Why Shipping Supplies is Important

Mano a Mano was founded more than 20 years ago with the goal of saving surplus medical supplies from the landfill in Minnesota and shipping them to Bolivia, where we knew these supplies were desperately needed and could be used immediately.

The surplus program continues to be an integral part of our programs; watch the video below to learn more about the program and see the distribution of supplies in Bolivia from a recent shipment:
