PWS&D continues to respond to the needs caused by COVID-19. In Nicaragua, we’re supporting local partners as they repurpose program funds to provide COVID-19 support. Families are receiving food kits, as well as hygiene and sanitation items, including hand soap and towels, disinfectant wipes, bleach, cleaning supplies and toilet paper.

Thanks to your continued support, families in Nicaragua are more prepared to face the pandemic.

“Thank you for everything, whether it’s a lot or a little. We feel so thankful. Thank you! You can find masks to buy, but they are expensive and hard to get. You know, without work, it takes a lot to go out and buy them. People want to wear them, but they’re hard to get—the same with disinfectants, all of it. You can get it, but it’s difficult. We’re so thankful to everyone.” – Migdalia


María shares what it’s like for her family during the pandemic.

As a family, we try to take all the necessary measures, like covering our nose when sneezing, avoiding shaking hands, avoid going places where there might be large crowds. For many of the families in our community, it’s not possible to acquire protection materials like face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, or cleaning materials due to the rising prices in the market. We are so thankful for all of you and the help you bring to our community.”

“I’m so thankful for your support, for the masks, for these small expressions of love. We’re so thankful. Honestly, we didn’t have access to buy these things since we’re so far out. We’ve tried to just always distance ourselves from others, from other communities and towns. But yes, now, thanks to you, we have masks, and won’t have to use our little bit of money to buy them. Thankfully you are here supporting us with these. We’re so thankful.” – Lester
