Assisting Nicaragua earthquake survivors

After a series of earthquakes shook Nicaragua this week, our Disaster Services team is mobilizing support in the country through our established feeding program centers to assist survivors.

In Mateare, one of the regions most affected by the initial earthquake, in country staff are coordinating with the Nicaraguan government by distributing 1,000 bags of groceries to 1,000 families. The government is facilitating the delivery of the bags.

“Our Children’s Feeding Initiative is already active in Mateare where we are feeding more than 1,800 children, so we were in a good position to get food to earthquake survivors quickly,” says Chris Dudley, disaster services response director.

Teams will also deliver 220 bags of food for 220 families in the communities of Canaán and Cristiana Socialista Solidaria, where we have two Program Centers, serving 449 children.

“Next week we will be delivering 100 kits with kitchen supplies to 100 families who lost all of their household items, 100 barrels to store clean water, and 300 basic school kits to affected families so their children can go back to school,” says Andrea Frey Metzger, Latin America field operations director.

Partnerships make all the difference

There have been countless times since Convoy of Hope was founded that I was reminded of the importance of friends and partners, like you, who help us serve those who are hurting. When we held our first official outreach in California in 1994 we had the helping hands of dozens of volunteers. Just a few weeks ago, when we partnered with the U.S. State Department in El Salvador to help impoverished women, we were reminded once again of the power of collaboration and partnerships.

Late last year I traveled to the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan and witnessed the strength of partnerships between our Disaster Services team and numerous in-country churches, agencies and organizations. By working together we are stronger and able to help more people. In the Philippines that meant thousands of storm survivors were given help and hope during some of their most desperate hours.

In Ethiopia, Convoy of Hope’s Women’s Empowerment program is thriving and growing — with the support of in-country partners. Today, thanks to those partnerships, women are learning the skills to run their own businesses and provide for their families.

Our Children’s Feeding Initiative is currently in 11 nations and caring for more than 145,000 children. That is possible, in part, because of the generous support of our feeding partners here in the United States. I’ve met children around the world who are being nourished because of the key, strategic relationships we have with a myriad of partners who want to help lift children and families out of malnutrition and hunger.

Partnerships with organizations, businesses and governments are critical to Convoy of Hope’s mission. But just as important is our partnership with the many individuals, like you, who have joined us in our passion to help the impoverished and suffering. Thank you for your support!
