Because of political unrest in Nicaragua, many families are finding it even more difficult than usual to get food. Through your support and that of other organizations, we have been able to facilitate food distribution with the help of our partners in Nicaragua


Your continued support will help us carry out this important mission.

Help us keep the momentum going.
Every little bit helps.

The Nicaragua Project is a project of Capital to Bridge the Divide, a 501 (c) (3) organization
