All 3 containers have arrived at our St. Paul warehouse today! Now begins the work of loading each container as full as possible (no wasted space) over the next few days with donated supplies for Bolivia. This will be our first shipment of 2024; in 2023 we shipped 9 containers with 228,954 pounds from Minnesota to Bolivia.

Containers Arriving – April 4th, 2024

Wednesday Volunteers Waiting Patiently

Mano a Mano volunteers were waiting patiently for our 3 40-foot containers to arrive at our St. Paul warehouse so we can get to work loading them with donated medical supplies, mobility equipment, and other items for Bolivia! (It’s always a bit of a guessing game for what day containers will actually arrive.)

Recovered Resources Program

Mano a Mano collects donated medical supplies, mobility equipment, and other in-demand items in Minnesota for shipment to Bolivia, where they are distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country. Almost all of these supplies would have ended up in the landfill in Minnesota, and instead they are getting put to good use throughout Bolivia (we also provide supplies to organizations and individuals in the Twin Cities area). Most of these supplies are cost-prohibitive or unavailable at all in Bolivia, making them very helpful for people and organizations with limited resources.
