Bolivia is one of the most impoverished and least developed countries in all of Latin America. The country has been riddled with economic crisis since the 1980s. Problems mounted in recent years due to political instability, racial tensions, and violent protest. Among other issues, since the 1980s Bolivia has faced the challenges of wide poverty, illegal drug production as well drug trafficking.

In 2011, Bolivia faced mudslide disasters throughout the country, primarily displacing the impoverished communities. Many have been ill equipped to resume daily lives.

Currently, humanitarian relief efforts have been made to respond to the natural disaster in impoverished areas. Efforts focus primarily on rebuilding communities affected by natural disaster.
