Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the entire western hemisphere. In Northern Nicaragua the people reside in small rural villages and live on less that $1 per day. There is no access to healthcare or clean drinking water. Corner of Love has a long-term commitment to fix this. The Monument Chapter of Corner of Love is traveling to San Ramon, Nicaragua June 19- June 26. We will provide four medical clinics to the poorest people in the region. Since there is no accessible healthcare, small ailments can be catastrophic. An infection that we would easily solve with antibiotics from our local pharmacy, can be deadly for the people there.
In addition, we will be distributing school shoes to the children that can't afford them. It is a Nicaraguan law that children have a certain type of shoes in order to go to school. Many families in the rural villages cannot afford shoes for all of their children. Parents are then faced with selecting only one child from their family that can attend school. Children that cannot go to school have no chance of breaking the cycle of poverty. We are going in hopes of providing new school shoes to hundreds of children that otherwise would not be able to attend.
Any donation will help! Twenty dollars sends two children to school or buys anti-parasite medication that will keep 26 people parasite free for 6 months. If you can help with a donation, our team 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. Check out more about Corner of Love at www.corneroflove.org
