For the past 10 years, we have partnered with On Eagles Wings Ministry in Leon, Nicaragua. Oscar Correa and his team currently serve over 12,000 children, their families, and their pastors, in over 96 villages around Nicaragua. Oscar's ministry provides food for these feeding centers free of charge to the pastors, who take it back to their villages and feed the children at least one hot meal each day.
We have sent a team at least once a year for the purpose of medical missions, Vacation Bible School, construction assistance, and so many other opportunities.
In addition to the missions teams we send, we have also developed a sponsorship program, whereby we ask for folks back here in the states to sponsor one of the children from the Chinandega Dump. This location, a city dump, is where the Nicaraguan government placed some 300 villagers after a hurricane in 1998, with the promise of returning after they rebuilt their village. Well, the folks are still at the dump in Chinandega. The folks there scavenged to build huts to live in and for items to sell and survive. At the time, there were some 200 children in this dump.
Through our sponsorship program, we have been able to help them thrive and grow, as we try to meet their daily needs. For just $15 a month, you can sponsor a child. Your $15 will get them a hot meal 7 days a week, 2 medical and 1 dental visit as well as any medications needed, and a school uniform for the students to attend school. In Nicaragua, children must have a school uniform to attend school. These uniforms can cost as much as six months of wages for the parents. Without the uniform, the children cannot receive an education.
We urge anyone who would wish, to sponsor a child by going to the DONATE tab at the top of the page. click on the donate button on that page. You can make this a recurring payment through our secure, online portal. Please mark "Nicaragua Sponsor" in the comments section of the donation process.
We will send you the name, age, and grade of the child you sponsor, as well as a photograph of that child. We update these photos every three-four years, so you can watch your child grow and prosper as a result of your investment in their life!
