A Tu Lado & Mano a Mano

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

A Tu Lado has begun a new partnership with the Minnesotan nonprofit Mano a Mano (www.manoamano.org). Together, we will begin training first responders and staff to operate Mano a Mano’s ambulance services in rural Bolivia.

The pilot project will begin in early February, and we will return to Bolivia in April to launch a more extensive, customized curriculum. A Tu Lado will be bringing doctors and instructors from Venezuela to assist with the training, fostering an international dialogue about the potential of emergency medical education.

Mano a Mano is providing fiscal sponsorship to A Tu Lado for this project, so all donations will be tax-deductible. More details coming soon.
