Volunteers in Action at Mano a Mano, October 3, 2017.

Thanks to the volunteers from the St. Catherine University Volunteers in Action (VIA) group last night! From the St. Kate’s website: “VIA supports a balance of charity and justice. By offering regular longer-term volunteer opportunities to students, VIA engages volunteers in the community and culture of the places they serve.”
Also, thanks to our interns from Metropolitan State University that helped supervise last night.
Everything that was sorted last night will be shipped to Bolivia, where these medical supplies are distributed to people & organizations in need throughout the country. In 2017, Mano a Mano has shipped about 200,000 pounds of supplies from Minnesota to Bolivia.

From Minnesota to Bolivia: Distributing Donated Medical Supplies

Mano a Mano collects donated supplies in Minnesota and ships them to Bolivia, where they are distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country.

Check out footage and interviews from our most recent large-scale distribution of supplies in October 2016 at the Mano a Mano warehouse in Cochabamba, Bolivia, when more than 90,000 pounds of supplies were given away:

The Program that Started Mano a Mano

The surplus program is the program that started Mano a Mano more than 22 years ago; with the dedicated support of hundreds of volunteers in both the US & Bolivia, we have collected and shipped millions of pounds of supplies since 1994.
