Flood-hit Bolivian families are struggling to survive

Press release

(5 March 2007) - Approximately 70,000 families have been affected by the worst floods to hit Bolivia in 25 years, and many have had to abandon their homes and possessions. Last week, Bolivian President Evo Morales declared a national state of disaster in the country. SOS Children's Villages is providing flood-hit families from the affected rural regions with emergency aid in the form of aid parcels and day-care centres for children.
