Nikki Evans in Bolivia

Nikki Evans, Programme Officer for Bolivia, said:

“I’m so pleased that the Bolivian rural livelihoods projects were chosen for Harvest Fast Day and 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.”

“Communities in the Altiplano try to live in harmony with nature but they suffer some of the worst effects of climate change. The rainy season has become unpredictable and temperatures are rising which is putting more pressure on the rural agricultural communities. Through Hands On, supporters are connected with their global brothers and sisters, and combat the impacts of climate change together.”

Hear more from Nikki Evans during the online session.
