What if we told you that this same country faces higher maternal and child mortality rates than the rest of its Central American counterparts because of water contamination and insufficient healthcare leading to parasites, diarrhea, and malnutrition. Would you try to help?
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. The staggering and bleak statistics regarding mortality, healthcare, water contamination, and malnutrition define the future of the country and its youth, offering little hope to those living in extreme poverty.
But, you can make a difference. Each trip will focus on building modern bathrooms, installing water systems into homes, providing hope to those struggling to survive each day. Imagine the message that a young child could receive from you, simply giving your time and talent to bring water into their home.
I was born in one of the poorest regions of Nicaragua. Because my parents didn't register me with the government, I could not attend school and had no access to government services. Many girls like me must turn to prostitution just to eat.
Amigos for Christ has helped me register with the government. I now attend school and have the prospect of work. Through partnership with our church and community leaders, we are learning what it looks like to live in proper relationship to God and each other.
Will you be a part of bringing the HOPE of Jesus to Nicaragua? Due to COVID, we are on hold to travel into Nicaragua but are looking at team travel dates in the new year 2021. If you are interested in any of the following trip dates, please Contact Us for your next steps.
