BENEFITING: CORNER OF LOVE MINISTRIES

THE STORY:

Hi!

 

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the entire western hemisphere.  In Northern Nicaragua the people that reside in the small villages in the country live on less than $1 per day.  There is no access to healthcare or clean drinking water.  Corner of Love has a long term committment to fix this. I am joining the local chapter of Corner of Love to travel to San Ramon Nicaragua for a mission trip again this year.  We will be setting up medical and dental clinics in 8 different villages to give much needed healthcare to the poorest people in the region.  There is no accessible healthcare for these people so small ailments can be catastrophic.  Someone has to help these people!  So that is what I am going to do.

 

In addition, we will be distributing school shoes to the children that can't afford them.  In Nicaragua it is the law that you have to have shoes in order to go to school.  Many families in the outlying villages cannot afford shoes for all of their children.  So parents are faced with only sending one of their kids to school.  We are going to make sure that 500 kids get to go to school that otherwise wouldn't! 

 

I need your help though.  If you can help with a donation I would really appreciate it and the people we are serving will too!  God smiles when we all work together to serve the less fortunate.  Thank you so much for making this trip possible.
