Main sequences: Much of Bolivia’s department of Beni lies under water. Since December, heavy rains have caused major rivers to overflow, destroying crops, drowning cattle and isolating communities. In the municipality of Trinidad, 40 per cent of flood victims are children living with their parents in provisional shelters set up in public schools or in tents. UNICEF and its partners are providing emergency aid.
