Mano a Mano has been working on a new health clinic in Tocopilla, Bolivia. The clinic is now complete, and is the organization's 170th clinic project.  The Tocopilla clinic will join Mano a Mano’s network of 169 clinics throughout Bolivia. Mano a Mano’s network of clinics average nearly 1 million patient visits each year.
 

Providing Access to Health Care for 2,070 People

With the new clinic, medical professionals working in the community will have a much more comfortable working environment (which is very important for retaining staff in isolated rural communities), and community residents will have regular access to quality health care services provided through the Bolivian Health Ministry. The new clinic will provide comprehensive basic medical services.

The clinic program’s approach is that health outcomes can be dramatically improved with simple yet effective interventions, beginning with the basic ability to consistently access quality services in their own communities.

Providing Training, Education, and a Fully Equipped Clinic

As a Mano a Mano clinic, it will have Volunteer Health Promoter Training and Continuing Health Education workshops provided through the counterpart organization Mano a Mano Bolivia; it will also receive equipment and supplies to ensure that it is fully-furnished, and is connected with Mano a Mano Bolivia medical staff via radio for help with any difficult cases or issues. (Mano a Mano Bolivia also constructs many of the items for each clinic project such as beds and exam tables.)

The Tocopilla clinic project is a collaboration with:

  • Mano a Mano Bolivia (who oversees and manages the project from inception to completion)
  • Harbortown Rotary Club
  • Municipal Government of Villa Tunari
  • The Community of Tocopilla
  • Mano a Mano International

Rotary Bolivia Trip March 16th to 26th+/-, 2020; May be delayed a few months; assuming Bolivian politics are stable for our visit.  Safe travel is paramount. 
 
 
Enclosed is a flyer announcing the Bolivia Trip for this coming Spring, March 16th - 26th+/-, 2020, assuming Bolivian politics are stable for our visit.  Safe travel is paramount.  The approximate cost is $2,300 for travel expenses and we will limit the number of attendees to a dozen travelers.   The available slots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis with preference given to Rotarians.  There is a February 1st signup deadline and require anyone who wants to join the trip to provide me with a $250 check, made out to Mano a Mano Intl. for transportation costs associated with in - country travel, to reserve a spot. Many side trips are possible and will be determined by the groups preference.  I personally recommend visiting the Bolivia capital of La Paz, and would like to see the Inca sites near Lake Titicaca at the end of the trip.
