Below are a few updates on what our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Internacional has been up to over the past week. Despite the many challenges, we continue to work as we are able.

Thank You BAN Volunteers

We were very grateful for the help from volunteers from BAN (Bendecidos Alcanzando Naciones) this week. They helped sort supplies, prepare for the sale of our current harvest of hydroponic lettuce grown at our Center for Ecological Agriculture (CEA), helped us re-organize our “hospital clothing” category to be more efficient, and helped organize our space for the many medical supply distributions we are making on a regular basis. Thanks BAN!
