Mano a Mano has excess durable medical equipment that we are making available in the Twin Cities, for free, on Saturday, November 20th from 9am-11am. Please send specific requests to [email protected]; we will confirm whether we can fulfill your specific request. The more detailed the requests are, the more successful we can be in fulfilling the requests. It is also helpful if you can provide an approximate height/weight of the recipient. This program is to help local individuals who lack insurance coverage or the means to obtain this equipment commercially. Recipients should be a healthcare provider in some capacity and must sign a liability waiver upon receipt; we generally cannot provide equipment to individuals directly.

If you have an urgent need in between our regularly scheduled Saturday events, feel free to reach out and we will try to accommodate the request.
Sending Medical Supplies & Equipment to Bolivia
The vast majority of the donated supplies and equipment we receive at our Minnesota warehouse (90%+) is shipped to Bolivia. In 2021, we have sent 7 40-foot containers with over 180,000 pounds of supplies from Minnesota to Bolivia.
But we are happy to partner with other organizations when we have excess supplies, items that we cannot send to Bolivia, or items that are not the highest priority for our programs. Ultimately, we want to keep these supplies out of the landfill in Minnesota, and get them to people in need.
