For the past 22 years, Mano a Mano has been collecting and shipping millions of pounds of surplus medical supplies from hospitals, clinics, and other organizations across Minnesota and the Midwest to Bolivia where the supplies are distributed to people and organizations in need throughout the country. Join MINN on Wednesday, March 1st for a group volunteer opportunity at Mano A Mano. Sort medical supplies to be shipped, learn more about a locally based international NGO, and network with MINN community members!

Mano a Mano is an International NGO based in St Paul, MN dedicated to building infrastructure for health care, education, transportation and economic development in rural Bolivia. It all started in 1994 when co-founders Joan and Segundo Valesquez brought a few extra suitcases filled with medical surplus supplies with them as they visited Segundo’s family to over 99,000 pounds of medical, school, and environmental supplies shipped in 2015. More than 300 projects have since been completed, bringing health care, educational & economic opportunities, and water to over 1,500,000 individuals.
