Marcia and Jessica are getting ready to serve in another medical mission in Nicaragua! This will be Marcia's 5th trip and Jessica's second.
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 this June. We will provide 4 medical clinics 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 our local pharmacy, can be deadly for the people there. Someone has to help! That is why we are going. TO HELP!
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, can not afford shoes for all of their children. Parents are then faced with selecting only one child from their family to attend school. Children that can not 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 school.
We need your help! Any donation will help. Twenty dollars sends two children to school or buys 26 doses of 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
Be sure to note at the bottom of the Billing Page under the heading of Confirm Your Donation there is an "Optional Processing Fee" in orange letters. This is formatted to add 10% that goes directly to Crowdrise NOT to Corner of Love. Each donor can delete this fee by clicking on "Optional Processing Fee" and scrolling to $0; then click on the Save and Close orange button. This will delete that fee.
