On August 24-26 2017, Mano a Mano volunteers loaded 5 containers with 120,882 pounds of donated medical, school, and other supplies, with a conservative value of $1.8 million. These containers then started their journey to Bolivia, which takes a few weeks to arrive in-country, and many more months to clear customs.
