We were so happy to be able to host 12 Mano a Mano visitors from Bolivia at our St. Paul warehouse yesterday! They are in the US this week to celebrate Van Miguel Martínez Velásquez’ graduation from a virtual engineering IT masters program in Texas later this week (congratulations Van!), but they made sure to travel to Minnesota for a few days.
Mano a Mano’s mission is: “Partnering together – Hand in Hand – to transform the health and well-being of Bolivian communities in need.” In this picture above, we have staff and Board Members from Mano a Mano International (US office); staff and Board Members from Mano a Mano Nuevo Mundo; staff from Mano a Mano Internacional and Mano a Mano Aviation; local Mano a Mano volunteers, at least 7 of whom have been in Bolivia with us within the past year; our Spring 2023 Public Health intern from St. Catherine University; and many Bolivian family members that are (of course) Mano a Mano volunteers. (Staff from Mano a Mano Bolivia also were in the office yesterday for a meeting, after wrapping up their 14th International Acute Care Conference in Cochabamba in late April.)
It takes many people in many places, working together on behalf of Bolivian communities, and it’s always great to have the opportunity to share our day-to-day work with each other. Even though many of us talk/text/email all the time, it just isn’t the same as being able to connect in-person.
