Over the weekend Mano a Mano volunteers helped load 2 containers with nearly 75,000 pounds of medical supplies and construction equipment. The containers will be shipped to Bolivia, where the medical supplies will be distributed to our network of 120 health clinics throughout Bolivia. We also shipped bridge-making supplies and equipment in collaboration with Bridges to Prosperity, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide isolated communities with access to essential healthcare, education, and economic opportunities by building footbridges over impossible rivers. They are opening an office in Bolivia, and we shipped a number of large spools of used wire rope that will be used in the construction of footbridges.

Thanks to our great volunteers who helped out this weekend, despite temperatures in the 90s and a lot of heavy lifting; we really appreciate it!
Volunteers stuffing the empty space with walkers; we never waste space!
