You are here: Flooding in Bolivia


Thousands of people homeless. Fields underwater. Homes destroyed. 

At least six people have died in Bolivia after heavy rain caused severe flooding and landslides at the start of February 2018. 

A month's worth of rain fell in the space of 24 hours, forcing families to flee their homes and seek shelter in community centres or with host communities. 

Watch the video from Colin, a ShelterBox Response Team member, who is looking at how we can best help the families affected.

We are completing needs assessments to see how we can provide families with the tools they need to start rebuilding their homes.

When natural disasters like this rob people of their homes, we can't wave a magic wand to replace what was lost. But we can help create something new.

With your help, families can start to rebuild their homes and their lives.
