Join Us and Our Bolivian Guests on June 30th for an Open House at Mano a Mano
Please join Mano a Mano for an open house on Thursday, June 30th from 5.30-7pm at our office/warehouse (925 Pierce Butler Route, St. Paul, MN 55104 – click here for a map and contact info). This event is a low-key get-together to meet our Bolivian guests and spend some time with Mano a Mano friends. No RSVP needed.
We will be joined by 2 guests from Bolivia – Jose Luis, an aviation mechanic with our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Aviation and Charo, a nurse that volunteers with Mano a Mano helping to organize the supplies we send to Bolivia and manage the distribution.
We hope to see you there! If you have questions please feel free to contact the office – phone: 651-457-3141, email: [email protected]
Mano a Mano Aviation
Last year, Mano a Mano’s aviation program provided emergency flights to 538 people, in addition to flying volunteer medical professionals for 40 weekend health clinics. Safety is the top priority for any aviation program, and we are happy to have dedicated staff like Jose Luis to ensure that our flights are as safe as possible.
Surplus Distribution Program
Collecting surplus medical supplies in Minnesota – saving them from the landfill – and sending them to Bolivia, where we know that they can be put to good use, is the program that started Mano a Mano more than 20 years ago. Charo has been volunteering recently with Mano a Mano helping to manage the organization & distribution of supplies once they arrive in Cochabamba.
These are some pictures from our recent shipment earlier this month that Charo will be helping to organize once they arrive in Bolivia:
