The Ongoing Drought in Bolivia is Worsening
Bolivia has experienced the hottest winter on record resulting in more evaporation, drier soils and an increase in crop diseases, all of which negatively affects yields.
Declining family budgets
Bolivian families are forced to either buy water for irrigation, which increases expenses, or accept reduced crop yields, which decreases revenue and food availability.
Your donation will supply urgent relief like:
purchasing clean water for consumption and garden watering
mulch to help keep moisture in the ground to help gardens grow
a variety of drought resistant seeds to continue to grow food
provide meals at school and after-school centres to offset the cost of food for parents
