Family to Family: help in real time!

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!

Dear Supporters- it is with with regret, but also satisfaction about our achievements that we have decided that it time to close the Nicaragua Children’s Foundation.

Political instability in Nicaragua has made it increasingly difficult to deliver programs and services on the ground. We have managed to do so on a reduced scale for the last few years but the situation has worsened and continued meaningful operations is no longer an option.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the many friends, supporters, volunteers and contributors
who have worked closely with us over the years.  None of this would have been possible without you.

Finally a huge gracias to our dear friend and and Nicaragua agent Veronica and to all of our friends and supporters in Nicaragua. We have learned so much from you all.
