The coronavirus has pushed people already living in poverty to the very brink of survival. More children are starving this year. More hospitals are overwhelmed without enough equipment. More people need food, clothing, and hygiene kits.

The good news is our distribution center is full of these critical supplies … but we need your help to ship them.

Every $1 you give will ship $33 worth of lifesaving aid like food, medical supplies, hygiene kits, and more someone needs to survive. You will help save the life of a person like Esperancita.

Esperancita and her sister are both single moms struggling to make ends meet in Nicaragua. Before the pandemic, they had at least worked out a way to feed their children. Esperancita would go to work cleaning houses while her sister stayed home to care for all of the kids.

Then the coronavirus hit.

People no longer wanted someone coming in their homes to clean and possibly bring the virus. Esperancita lost her job. Her income dried up … then her savings.

The day our partners in Nicaragua met Esperancita, her family had only a few vegetables left to eat. Then, the family would go hungry.

That’s why your gift is so important.

There are people waiting for help today. There is food, clothing, medical supplies, and more in our distribution center right now. These items just need to be shipped!

And when you help ship them, your donation will multiply 33X!

Here’s how you’ll help:

1. Generous corporate donors and grants have provided critically needed medical supplies, emergency food, hygiene kits, and more.

2. Your donation will help send these relief items to the people who need them most.

3. Every $1 you give will ship $33 worth of lifesaving supplies!

Please, don’t wait.

Make your gift today to help people like Esperancita as soon as possible.
