The people in one of Nicaragua’s poorest villages are rich with dreams of a better future. Our work is dedicated to helping and giving hope to the people of El Crucero.

Current Needs

Nicaragua is the poorest county in Central America and El Crucero is one of Nicaragua’s poorest villages. Necessities like food, shelter, clean water and medical care are limited. The average El Crucero family income is less than $2.00 per day. One-third of the village children suffer from malnutrition and access to medical treatment is extremely limited.
