May 9 - 13, 2018 - NICARAGUA
Nicaragua is the least developed country in Central America, and the second poorest in the Americas by nominal GDP. In Nicaragua, nearly one out of every two persons lives below the poverty line. Children are the first to suffer from this deplorable economic situation, all the more financial aid for families is rare and the amount of money is miniscule.
We visited the city of Chontales and the hospitals in the small towns within it. We got to deliver care bags to many young mothers of rural areas. Many of them had no beds and were in waiting areas but were still in happy spirits and extremely grateful for the bags. The smile on their faces and the sense that someone cared for them was priceless. Thank you to the people of Nicaragua who helped us, a huge THANK YOU to our donors. Without your donations we could not have made this possible and we are beyond grateful.
