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 on the ground, looking at how we can best help the families affected.

We are meeting with trusted partners, including Habitat for Humanity and Rotary International, to see how we could work together to provide people with the tools they need to start the process of recovery.

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.
