2019 was a milestone year for Mano a Mano as we celebrated our 25th anniversary in operation! None of our work would be possible without the support of many dedicated supporters in the US, Bolivia, and elsewhere; we thank you for helping us get here! Check out a few pictures of what we were able to do together in 2019 at the link above.
On December 3rd, Mano a Mano held a small event at our warehouse to distribute a few orthopedic supplies and equipment to people with physical limitations from 8 municipalities in Cochabamba. In all we distributed 830 items.
Mano a Mano has partnered with TPT to make a number of videos highlighting our volunteers in the Twin Cities that make our work possible. Check out 5 Mano a Mano videos on the TPT website at the link above (and watch for them on all TPT channels!), and we will be sharing stories over the coming months.
Mano a Mano has been working on a new health clinic in Tocopilla, Bolivia. The clinic is now complete, and is our 170th clinic project.
Over the past few months, Mano a Mano has dedicated 4 new clinic and school projects in Bolivia in collaboration with the communities and our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Bolivia. (We also have other projects currently underway, like the recently completed Tocopilla clinic.) The goal of these projects is to provide access to health care and education for isolated communities, in order to ultimately improve people’s quality of life.
