“We have called on the National Government to accompany us in this emergency. The overflowing of streams and rivers has caused us significant losses in homes, belongings, animals, crops and merchandise,” said the president.

Arana Padauí deeply regretted the disappearance of the child Samuel and stressed the need for an urgent response from the National Government, especially given the beginning of the rainy season.

Bolívar, with its complex geography and numerous bodies of water, requires special attention to meet the challenges that lie ahead during the La Niña phenomenon.
