Two Containers of Recovered Resources En Route to Bolivia

This morning, two containers filled with recovered resources (medical supplies, school supplies, wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, and other items) were picked up to start their journey from Mano a Mano’s St. Paul, Minnesota warehouse to our warehouse in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

These supplies will be distributed to people & organizations in need throughout Bolivia.

Mano a Mano volunteers loading the 2 containers with 41,559 pounds of supplies over the past week.

8 Containers Shipped in 2018

This year, Mano a Mano has shipped 166,607 pounds of donated supplies. Once they arrive in Bolivia, they are organized and re-sorted by our Bolivian staff & volunteers. This shipment was made possible by the success of Mano a Mano’s Festival 2018 event in September.

They are then distributed in different ways:
