We are almost done completely filling 2 containers with donated medical supplies, mobility equipment, and other items at our St. Paul warehouse! Next week, these containers will make their way to Bolivia, where they will be organized at our Cochabamba warehouse for distribution to people in need around the country.

Saving Medical Supplies From the Landfill in Minnesota and Putting Them to Use in Bolivia
Mano a Mano started in 1994 with the goal of saving surplus medical supplies from the landfill in Minnesota and shipping them to Bolivia, where we knew these supplies were desperately needed and could be used immediately. We have grown as an organization since then: building clinics, schools, water reservoirs, wells, water ponds, roads, and greenhouses in partnership with communities; providing emergency air transport; and providing health education and agricultural training programs, among other projects. But distributing medical supplies and equipment continues to be a critical component of our work.
