Flora went on a mission trip in December 2016-January 2017 to serve Salesian brothers and sisters in Masaya, Nicaragua. The Mama Margarita Foundation is a non-profit organization that was conceived in 2012, after Vicky and Manuel Gallo, parents of Fr. Manny Gallo, SDB, witnessed the deprivation of Nicaragua’s most forgotten residents, the children. Vicky realized something had to be done, children were NOT meant to live this way. With the help of volunteers and financial support, the foundation has already built four homes for people in the local neighborhood of Masaya, Nicaragua. Additionally, Vicki the "mother" of the foundation feeds and prays with at least 60 children each day. Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America. Sixty percent of the population lives on less than two dollars a day. In 2013, one of the mission teams built a home for a family of four, strengthening ties with the local community. In 2014, another home was built. The foundation looks forward to continuing construction on more homes and supporting impoverished children, to change their future for the better today.
