Mano a Mano volunteers have spent the past week loading 3 containers with roughly 40 tons of donated medical supplies, mobility equipment, and other items at our St. Paul warehouse for shipment to Bolivia, where they will be distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country. This is our first shipment of 2024; in 2023 we shipped 9 containers with 228,954 pounds from Minnesota to Bolivia.

Almost all of these supplies would have ended up in the landfill in Minnesota, and instead they are getting put to good use throughout Bolivia (we also provide supplies to organizations and individuals in the Twin Cities area). Most of these supplies are cost-prohibitive or unavailable at all in Bolivia, making them very helpful for people and organizations with limited resources.
