The Brothers distributed food to fire-fighters who came to put out the fire in Tunari Park

15/10/2019: Bolivia

Days before the opening of the Amazon Synod, the Novitiate in Cochabamba, Bolivia, joined in several activities to mark Creation Week. Sadly, these days coincided with numerous fires that broke out throughout the Amazon and much of Bolivian Chiquitania.

At the same time, near the Novitiate, there was also a fire that devastated much of the Tunari Park, a chain of mountains that belonged to the Andes Mountain Range, which some three to four thousand metres high.

During the first three days of October, the Novitiate took part in a solidarity action, and as part of it, prepared and distributed food to some 200 fire-fighters and volunteers who worked so hard day and night to extinguish the fire.

The other Marist communities of Bolivia -Comarapa, Santa Cruz, San José de Chiquitos and Roboré- also coordinated various actions aimed at giving aid to the population affected by the fires in Eastern Bolivia.
