Bolivia: High Energy Biscuits: "Making Life a Little Easier"

There are 33 families in the community of Cachuela Mamoré that are seeking refuge on the highways during this overwhelming flood season. In collaboration with the Civil Defence, WFP has delivered 30 metric tons of High Energy Biscuits (HEB) to this community as well as 37 others in the municipality of Guayaramerín, and a total of 143 communities have received High Energy Biscuits within the department of Beni, as an initial emergency response to the flooding affecting most of Bolivia. Many of the roads are inaccessible, WFP has had to deliver assistance by inland waterways. 

Overview

Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in Latin America: of its 9.5 million population, two thirds overall – 80 percent in rural areas – live below the poverty line.
