THE STORY:

Friends,

Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the entire western hemisphere.  In Northern Nicaragua the people that reside in the small villages out 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 commitment to fix this. I am joining the local chapter of Corner of Love to travel to San Ramon, Nicaragua for a mission trip this year.

We will be setting up medical and dental clinics in 4 different villages to give needed healthcare to the poorest people in the region.  Because there is no accessible healthcare, small ailments can be catastrophic.  An infection that we would easily solve with antibiotics from the local pharmacy can be deadly.  I have been several times and seen it firsthand.  Someone has to help these people!  That is what we do.

I need your help!  Any donation will help.  Twenty dollars sends two kids to school with shoes or it will buy 20 doses of anti-parasite medication that will keep 20 people parasite free for 6 months.  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.
