Samaritan's Purse is responding to the crisis in Nicaragua

Sixty-five people have died since mid-April in the wake of a government announcement proposing reforms to the social security system reducing pensions that triggered a violent uprising.

“Hate, violence, and disappearances are causing panic and uncertainty,” says Samaritan’s Purse Canada International Disaster Response Manager David Bock. “Food hampers as well as moral and spiritual support are being provided to hundreds of families during this time of suffering and instability.”

A local church partner in Nicaragua will help distribute emergency supplies while also mobilizing church leaders and members to provide for the needs of those under their care as a result of this crisis.

“We are sharing the message of love, praying for the sick and providing for basic needs during this time of crisis,” says Bock.

Road blocks across the country have affected transport routes to access markets for both buyers and sellers and factories.

“We are sharing the message of love, praying for the sick and providing for basic needs during this time of crisis.”

Spiritual support and food aid are being provided to 350 marginalized households.

“In the area where we are providing emergency aid, the general population is going hungry, which affects children and the elderly most severely,” says Bock.

Samaritan’s Purse Canada is committed to showing the love of Christ and meeting urgent, physical needs in areas of crisis around the world.
