Nicaraguan refugees in Costa Rica are families like us. But the difference is that, as a result of COVID-19, many of them are homeless, unemployed or have no food or medicine to enable them to stay home as a protective measure. Your small donation can make a difference in their lives!
Nicaragua Freedom Coalition, in coordination with SOS Nicaragua Human Rights from Costa Rica, are asking for your donation to buy food kits for refugee families in Costa Rica, protecting everyone's health from COVID-19. With the rice, sugar, oil and beans purchased with your donation, those families will be able to stay safe in their homes, and if they are sick recover, helping to flatten the COVID-19 curve.
COVID-19 is putting many of the 98,000 Nica refugees in Costa Rica at a particular risk. It is crucial to stay at home to stay safe, but many don’t have food or medicine. They are forced to go looking for them outside their homes, potentially exposing themselves and others to the virus. In these families there are elderly people and women who suffer chronic illnesses, groups are particular concern. With your contribution we can help them!
In order to ensure transparency in the use of contributions, NFC has signed a Cooperation Agreement with SOS Nicaragua Derechos Humanos desde Costa Rica. Under this agreement, NFC will be receiving updates, informs, pictures, video clips on the purchased food kits and their distribution to refugees’ families.
