These families could not access the initial distributions due to transportation and communication disruptions caused by the floods. The assistance alleviated the effects of climate events thanks to the resources provided by the Immediate Response Account (IRA).

Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan visited Bolivia and, as a WFP advisor, met with several national authorities, including the Vice President, six Ministers of State and the Governor of the Department of Oruro. These meetings focused on current and necessary joint actions to advance towards Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), emphasizing Food Systems and a gender approach.

Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan had the opportunity to visit the people of the Uru Nation in the Department of Oruro, where she launched the WFP “Ancestral Knowledge & Natural Flavours” initiative.
