Mano a Mano International works in rural Bolivia building clinics, schools, roads, and irrigation projects, and provides airplanes for medical emergencies. Rich and Susan visited these projects on their recent trip to Bolivia. 95% of funds collected are spent on projects.
Rich Eyre served in the Peace Corps 49 years ago in Bolivia, and in 1968 he worked there with Joan Velasquez. She and her husband Segundo began Mano a Mano International in 1994 to assist rural Bolivians with health care, economic development, and education. For her work, Joan received the Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service 2008 for continued work by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
