Challenge

Nicaragua is currently undergoing its biggest uprising since the civil war ended in 1990. Many people are experiencing food shortages, gas and diesel are largely unavailable, and hundreds of roadblocks make it difficult to move from one area to another. Our two Nicaraguan partners-ASODENIC and NICACED-have been forced to close or suspend many of their operations in order to keep our staff and clients safe.

Solution

Your financial support will help us maintain our staff through this season of uncertainty and mitigate the financial risks facing our clients. We will continue to work with our Nicaraguan partners to determine the areas of greatest need as the situation develops moving forward.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help maintain our staff and mitigate the financial risks facing our clients as they rebuild their lives and communities in the wake of this national disaster. This works towards Opportunity's goal of raising $250,000 for our clients and staff in Nicaragua.
