Air-Dropping Food & Supplies into Beni, Bolivia
Below is a short video of the food drops Mano a Mano is doing in the Trinidad, Beni area:
The devastation is very bad. Even though the flood waters are receding, vast areas are still underwater; airstrips are flooded and canoes are the only way to get around in many areas. Mano a Mano staff have been using the airplanes to drop food & supplies into smaller and more isolated rural communities; because we can’t land we are air-dropping supplies from the plane. On a couple of occasions, we have used small parachutes to drop larger amounts of cargo at a time.
