Flooding, hail, snow and heavy frosts during the first three months of 2006 created a humanitarian emergency in eight of Bolivia’s nine departments. The impact on the country has been severe: more than 220,000 people have been affected in some way. Families have been displaced, homes, crops, animals and infrastructure lost, and thousands of people now find themselves in a critical situation with regard to basic humanitarian conditions, food and livelihood security.
CARE will provide assistance to approximately 7,400 people by providing adequate shelter, safe water, food and sanitation, household items, and livelihood security. CARE will also provide technical advice and assistance to local authorities.
The goal is to enable families to return to their communities, and identify longer-term solutions for shelter and economic recovery as quickly as possible. Significant effort will be required to rehabilitate land, crops, and infrastructure.
