All funds go directly to the kids in Nueva Vida so that they can have one meal everyday.
My name is Elise and I am a student at Virginia Tech. Through the Nicaraguan Orphan Fund at Tech I traveled, along with 43 other students, to Nicaragua this past spring break. We spent the majority of our with the 1,200 people still living in the refugee camp Nueva Vida (new life) that was temporarily built after Hurricane Mitch in 1998.
From April 5-April 9, a group of Nicaraguan Orphanage Fund volunteers from Virginia Tech will be eating rice and beans to raise monetary support and awareness for the children we left behind in Nueva Vida. This is the basic diet of the 27% of the Nicaraguan population that is malnourished. Over 60% of the Nicaraguan population is unemployed because of the strict government structure that currently exists in Nicaragua. Although these communities have nothing, the children were still joyful, faithful, and full of life.
All that I ask for from you is a couple of dollars, or what it would cost for a normal meal, so that these kids can eat lunch everyday. Thank you for your generosity.
