Sixty-year-old Mercedes lives miles off the paved roads in a rocky region of Nicaragua. Ten other family members live with her. The area where they live experiences frequent droughts that create challenges for Mercedes and other local Nicaraguans. Farmers in this area struggle to raise crops, which makes it difficult to afford food.

Mercedes’ family receives a Nicaragua-Adopt-A-Family food parcel each month. The parcel is a huge relief to them when life is hard. Mercedes said, “We wait for the food parcel like we wait for the rain.”

Monthly Sponsorship

YES, I intend to sponsor a poor family in Nicaragua. I understand each $59 provides 45 pounds or more of food and healthcare items.

NOTE: You will receive information on the family you sponsor.
