In Bolivia with average earnings of just £500 per month and high cost of living comparative to the UK, many individuals struggle to make ends meet. According to the individuals that we support in country, many live day to day, harvesting enough food each day to sell. The proceeds are then needed to buy food that day for the family.
Covid19 has disrupted this pattern as the Bolivian government has had to impose severe lockdowns to protect their health system.
As incredible as it seems in 2021 many Bolivians are lacking the daily basic essentials of bread to eat. That is why the Peart family have pivoted to baking bread every day to distribute to their local community.
The Foundation has supported this family in the work before and continues to do so now their work is even more crucial.
