Embassy of Switzerland in Bolivia
The pandemic didn’t stop us
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a year of great challenges, in Bolivia as well as in the rest of the world. Our capacity to adapt to this context had to be proven, but despite the difficult circumstances, we have maintained our spirit of solidarity, learning that it’s possible that these complex times bring to light the positive effects that unite us as humanity.
We have not yet been able to return to the ordinariness we had before the pandemic began and our lives have certainly changed in many ways. Although we are all aware of the difficulties and sad moments that this sanitary crisis has entailed, now we commemorate the Swiss National Day 2021 and we invite you to focus on the positive aspects that this new reality has brought us: We have started to value every moment, to be grateful for what we had taken for granted before; we have strengthened our bonds of friendship and we have learned to appreciate the time with our loved ones even more.
The Swiss Embassy and Cooperation in Bolivia has not given up either and we have rather made an effort to adapt our work to the needs created by this new context. We invite you to join us and get to know some of these contributions. Let’s celebrate this 1st of August with the joy of being together, despite the distances.
