The NCF focuses on long term strategic initiatives designed to promote sustainable economic and social development. But sometimes there is an opportunity to provide immediate help in real time.  Here is a story about a family who helped in the latter way. Andy Cohan,  his wife Julie, and their children Sophia, Isabella and Nicoli were visiting San Juan del Sur. He emailed us to see how they could help. The family did some shopping for basic necessities at the local Pali and , with the help of our agent Veronica Castro carried the groceries in to Ana and her family in Las Casitas (near Ojochal). This kind of generosity is deeply appreciated by this extended family! After returning to the United States, Andy secured the donation of two boxes of Spanish language books. Next week we will be taking these to Nicaragua a major acquisition for the Ojochal library!
