Covid 19 Food Support Program Update

By Jamie Collum | Project Leader

It has been a very tough few months for our community in northern Nicaragua but thankfully with your support, many families are doing well. We are now in our fifth month of the distribution of food provisions to our greater community. Fortunately, we have been spared the worst of the coronavirus but unemployment is widespread and many families continue to struggle to put food on the table. We started this program we started with 60 families and have now doubled to supporting 120 families every 10 days with food packages. The packages include rice, beans, oil and bars of soap for handwashing. We have now distribued more than12,000 pounds of rice and 6,000 pounds of beans. 

We are optimistic that tourism will return in the coming months and this will help to return some jobs to our community. We expect this will happen slowly to start with but we hope that it will steadily build from there. This program was set up to temporarily support our community during this challenging time but hopefully it will not be needed for much longer.

A special thanks to the teams and many guests from Rise Up Surf Nicaragua and Coco Loco Eco Resort for their fundraising efforts, generous donations and on the ground support for this program.
