This is a donation page to support the Nicaraguan people as they undergo civil unrest in the face of a murderous dictator, Daniel Ortega. For details, please click here to read my blog post.  I am collecting donations to support La Esperanza, (an NGO that supports children and families in the barrios), The American Nicaraguan Foundation (providing medicine, medical supplies, hospital beds, food aid, clothing) and a few individual families that we personally know.  As I am not a registered 501c3,(just someone who has spent a lot of time in Nica with a deep affection for the people there) so  I cannot provide you with a tax deductable reciept for your donation. What I can give you is a gift of beautiful handmade jewelry made by Ronald Cortez Poveda, a resident of Granada, (pictured below) who is now unable to make a living with his jewelry for the lack of tourists in Granada. If you do not wish to have a gift or prefer to donate directly, please click on the organization links to donate. Thank you in advance for giving generously!
