Mano a Mano’s Recovered Resources Program

All of the supplies that will go to Potosi started as donations at our warehouse in St. Paul, Minnesota many months ago. We just shipped another 2 containers that are now on their way to Bolivia; this year we have sent 7 40-foot containers with over 180,000 pounds of supplies from Minnesota to Bolivia.
