Giving Tuesday 2018

Giving Tuesday: 27 November 2018

Maria Lidia, heart patient

At the CDCA, we work with people who struggle every day to meet their basic needs… and in our work, we are struggling to continue helping them. We need your help.

The CDCA has been in Nicaragua for 24 years working with communities, running a health clinic that serves a city of 200,000 (click here for video).

But due to political unrest earlier this year*, our volunteer delegations have cancelled. Without delegations, the CDCA is facing a budget deficit of over $100,000 per year. Not only are volunteers not coming, but neither are donated medicines.

Asthmatic kids need inhalers all year longWithout this ongoing support, we are struggling to continue helping patients like Maria Lidia. Maria Lidia is a 76-year-old grandmother, but she can’t survive by taking her heart medication once a year.

Because hypertensive patients like Maria Lidia, diabetic patients, kids with asthma, children with HIV and so many others can’t survive by taking their medications just once a year, we need your ongoing support.

This Giving Tuesday, 27 November 2018, our goal is to double the number of recurring monthly donors and double the total monthly gifts.  We are asking you to donate $50 per month, or as much as you can

Make this year a life-giving year for Maria Lidia, asthmatic children, and others… that they can count on ALL year long.
