According to the sector’s deputy minister Juan Carlos Calvimontes, the delivery of food and supplies reached about 100 municipalities of the country’s nine departments, where 24,253 families and almost 2,000 homes were damaged.

Calvimontes added that the delivery of humanitarian aid will continue next week in the upper and lower valleys of Cochabamba and Santa Cruz departments.

The deputy minister asked the elected regional authorities to prioritize the appointment of the heads of their risk management units to continue the work developed in those areas.

He also requested that the assistance to the victims be immediate and that no human nor economic efforts be spared in assisting the families, since, he said, ‘the Government is not going to abandon the Bolivian population’.
