|COVID-19 is hitting Nicaragua, hard. Please join us in responding in Christ’s love with food and facemasks. $15 feeds a family of 5 for a month. $5 provides 5 face masks. Donate.
COVID-19 brings the darkness of fear, sickness, and death. Now more than ever, we need to shine God’s light. By God’s grace, 516NOW is uniquely situated (Ruth 2:3, Esther 4:14) to provide aid to some of the least of these (Matt 25:35-36) in the form of masks and relief-level food supplies in Nicaragua.
The need in Nicaragua is great. Already the poorest country in Central America, Nicaragua faced severe internal strife in 2018 and has not yet recovered. The pandemic has been largely ignored in Nicaragua and the people are receiving mixed messages. Fear abounds, food is scarce, and the newly escalated cost of masks is prohibitive.
516NOW is taking action in two ways: 1) Masks for families and children and 2) Emergency food relief. Our contacts in the communities we serve have identified these as the greatest needs. Both will be distributed to families in need free and with no strings attached
