When we talk about Nicaragua we often talk about its totalitarian regime, of course we also mention its natural beauties and the warmth of its people. But this time, we are here to highlight their solidarity in the middle of harsh circumstances. To commemorate two years after the April 2018 civil uprising against their government, the Nica group came up with the idea of throwing up a virtual concert to raise donations for Nicaraguans battling the #COVID19 crisis in high-risk situations.
Together we created resources that will impact the daily circumstances of many Nicaraguans under vulnerability. We want to congratulate us but most importantly we must congratulate you, yes, you! We did this together. With your help, your time, your donations, and your solidarity we will be able to put together a large amount of #CoronaCareKit that will be sent to Orphanages, nursing homes, and community clinics in Nicaragua. We are also sending half of the kits to Nicaraguan people in exile, seeking asylum in Costa Rica, Panama, and The Netherlands.
Your collaboration confirms that in the midst of a crisis we are not alone. The elderly, the orphans, the refugees that left the country because of political persecution are not alone. We are in this together, we can count on each other. More specifically your help is going to be used on #CoronaCareKit that are equipped with:
- Face masks
- Disposable gloves
- Hand sanitizer
- Dry goods such as rice and beans.
- Analgesic and fever reducer medicines.
The total amount of kits will be distributed as follows:
- 50% to Orphanages, nursing homes and community clinics in Nicaragua.
- 25% asylum seekers and refugees in Costa Rica.
- 15% asylum seekers and refugees in Panama.
- 10% asylum seekers and refugees in The Netherlands.
You’ve done an amazing job, together we’ve managed to raise € 1,287.68 euros from donors in France, United States, Nicaragua, Norway, Denmark, Canada, Belgium, Sweeden, Panama, Spain, and of course The Netherlands. Please spread the word as we are still open for donations. Together we are making a difference!
