Truckload of Donated Medical Supplies from Milwaukee
On Tuesday, March 27th Mano a Mano Co-Founder Segundo Velasquez and Volunteer Warehouse Manager Ray Wiedmeyer flew to Milwaukee and filled a Uhaul truck with donated medical supplies to bring back to our St. Paul warehouse.
Thanks to Stradis Healthcare and the Wagner Foundation for making this donation possible!
These supplies will be included in our next shipment to Bolivia, where they will be distributed to people & organizations in need throughout the country.
Our Next Shipment to Bolivia is Next Week – April 5-7, 2018
Mano a Mano will be loading 4 40-ft. containers with about 100,000 pounds of donated supplies at our St. Paul warehouse on April 5-7.
If you are interested in helping load containers, please contact Carmen ([email protected] or 651-457-3141).
Our Last Loading Event at Mano a Mano in August 2017
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.
Many of these supplies were distributed to organizations that came from around Bolivia during a distribution event in Cochabamba, Bolivia earlier this month.
