Lord Have Mercy!

Last year's floods devastated the Eastern regions of Bolivia.

Floods this year, caused by La Nina, have left a trail of destruction. Prensa Latina are reporting that 40 municipalities were declared disaster zones yesterday, with almost 90,000 families affected and 57 people reported dead.

The photo (Reuters/Alert Net) on the right top hand show a family living in makeshift tent as a result of the floods.

Lord Have Mercy!

Dear Raphael,
I am extremely saddened by the state of Bolivia after the floods, and I want to raise more awareness about what has happened and also encourage people to start thinking about the international impact their environmental habits might be making on others. I am writing for an online newspaper: http://environmentalnewsonline.com and was wondering if you would be willing to write about your experience and allow me to quote you for a story I write? If so, email me at:

Thanks so much,
Tuuli Platner
