Having an aviation program allows Mano a Mano to transport supplies throughout Bolivia, like these recent donations in the departments of Beni and Oruro. In 2020, we transported 95,000 of cargo. Mano a Mano shipped 175,777 pounds of donated supplies and equipment from Minnesota to Bolivia last year; we have 3 containers with over 75,000 pounds currently en route.
