Bolivia is one of the poorest and least developed countries in Latin America. It also has one of the highest rates for AIDS and STDS in Latin America. Malnutrition, high infant mortality rate, illiteracy, alcoholism and other social ills are also very common. Cora Arevalo, our Base Director, is involved in a ministry to families (Footprints) and children’s ministry (EMTRA). Two of CFCI’s ministries in Bolivia are Mahanaim and Emmanuel. Our Mahanaim ministry is a daycare for children under 6 years of age. It provides a safe place and hot meals for the children while their parents are at work. Our Emmanuel ministry works with children of mothers who are in prostitution. They provide before and after school programming, food, homework help, and spiritual support.
