Recently, Hurricane Iota struck Nicaragua as a category 5 storm, making landfall. With a heavy heart, we would like to inform you that the lives of several of our farmers and community members were lost in landslides brought about by the hurricane.
If you have a moment we’d ask that you post the image attached below as a story on your feed. Our goal is to storm heaven with prayers for Rolyn, Lorena, the 11 lives lost, and the community as we try to help them rebuild.
We’re pitching in to help our farmers with Hurricane Iota relief, which enables Rolyn and Lorena to provide leadership in the local community to clear roads and rebuild shelter for the homeless.
Nicaragua, officially the Republic of Nicaragua, is the largest country in Central America. Once under Spanish rule, the country gained full independence in 1838. Today, Nicaragua is struggling to overcome decades of dictatorship, communism, civil war, and natural disasters, which have left it one of the region’s poorest countries.
Nicaraguans are proud of their country’s coffee market, rich cultural traditions and diverse ecosystems. But without help, families sorely lack the means to give their children the very basics they need to survive, thrive and someday become their country’s future leaders.
