In recent days, the world's attention has been captured by the fires raging in the Amazon rainforest. The forest covers millions of square miles across nine different countries including Bolivia, where Oxfam is working with partners on the ground.
In the hard-hit municipality of San Ignacio de Velazco, where about 2,000 families have left their houses to find shelter out of the fire, Oxfam partners will be coordinating with the government to provide clean water to indigenous communities and helping families cover basic food needs. As the fires continue to burn, we're aiming to expand our support to other affected areas, concentrating on providing food and water to the communities that need it most.
