Mano a Mano Volunteer Ray on the Containers Arriving in Bolivia

Mano a Mano super-volunteer Ray recently shared this note about the arrival of Mano a Mano’s 4 containers with 85,000+ pounds of supplies last week:
It took 6 months to collect enough medical and school supplies, 3 days to fill the 4 containers, 4 months to travel through the Panama Canal to Chile, 1 day to travel by truck to customs in La Paz, 3 weeks to clear customs, 9 hours yesterday for the containers to travel by truck to Cochabamba, and 2 hours to be unloaded by crane at the Mano a Mano warehouse. It was an exciting and emotionally charged day for me… something I hadn’t quite expected when I planned this trip. I guess I and many others have a lot invested…blood, sweat, and today a few surprising tears of joy.
