Provide the greatest impact possible by giving where it is most needed.

What are the needs?

Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America, and the impacts of the global pandemic have been tragic for so many. The economic fallout has hit marginalized communities the worst. Families are struggling to feed their children due to rising prices, while more and more companies are laying off employees. Many children are struggling to ‘catch-up’ from the schooling they have missed due to lockdowns and school closures.

What can be done to help?

Through our local church partners, CBM supports numerous projects to improve the livelihoods of children and families in Bolivia. 

In the red-light district of Cochabamba, mothers who work the streets must leave their children at home alone and unattended. This leads to missed meals, missed school and an environment that is unhealthy and dangerous. Fundacion Emanuel provides psychological and educational support, meals, and a community where children and their mothers are cared for.

Educational workshops, skills training, and livelihood opportunities help support families in poverty as well as help develop students and pastors as they support communities through the local church. 

Chagas disease is a silent killer among the poor, transmitted by an insect that thrives in adobe walls and thatched roofs that slowly destroys internal organs, especially the heart. Workshops aim at preventative measures, providing access to medical attention and testing, and reinforcing homes to protect families from contracting the disease. By increasing the quality of life in rural communities, families can not only survive but flourish.

How will your raised funds be used?

Funds raised will be used to provide:

  • Psychological and educational support
  • Meals for at-risk children
  • Educational workshops
  • Skills training in areas such as sewing, beekeeping and kitchen gardening
  • Workshops to prevent Chagas disease
  • Medical attention and testing for Chagas

With your support, the Chagas disease can be prevented and communities in Bolivia can experience renewal through healthcare, education, and agricultural development.
