More emergency aid is needed for flood-hit Bolivian families

02/04/2007 - More than a month after the worst flooding to hit Bolivia's Amazon plain in a quarter of a century, it is estimated that approximately 900 tons of food per month are needed for some 17,000 families in the worst-affected rural districts of Santa Cruz and Beni. SOS Children's Villages continues to provide aid in the form of food parcels and day-care centres for children.
