We are so blessed to be able to
serve the Lord and the people of Nicaragua as country
directors of Convoy of Hope and Latin America
ChildCare. Please take a few moments and see what God
is doing in Nicaragua and how you can be a part of it!
The largest country in Central America (about
the size of New York State), Nicaragua is filled with natural
beauty from its 25 volcanoes to the largest freshwater lake in
Central America to its mountains and beaches. But in the
midst of this lush tropical country lies a great need! As the 2nd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, an average
person lives on just $480 a year, 48% live below the poverty line,
and 46% are either unemployed or underemployed. 800,000
children are not able to attend school each year, and 36% of
those who do begin school will not graduate the 6th grade.
The need is great and Latin America ChildCare and Convoy of Hope
are working together to bring hope. By meeting physical
needs, they are able to meet spiritual needs as well
bringing the good news of Christ!
