Nicanora and her family in Bolivia

Nikki Evans, Programme Officer for Bolivia, said:

“Families in Bolivia make the most they can out of every single penny and understand the importance of every grain of sand. They are hugely grateful for CAFOD supporters and any gift you can give as a donation will help them.”

“I’m so pleased that the Bolivian rural livelihoods projects were chosen for Hands On! Many of the poorest and most vulnerable people in Bolivia live in the highest parts of the Andes mountains and so it’s difficult for visitors to come and learn about the work the CAFOD supports.”
