2 containers with 46,829 pounds of supplies were picked up from our St. Paul warehouse today to start their journey to Bolivia! Once they arrive at our Cochabamba warehouse, they will be distributed to people & organizations in need throughout the country. This shipment leaving this week is our second of 2021; we sent 3 containers with over 75,000 pounds of supplies in April.
