Food for the Poor has made us aware of the significant challenges people in poverty in Nicaragua face.
To make a home, the poor in Nicaragua scavenge for materials--some wood, a piece of plastic, rusty zinc sheet, or an old tarp. These rough living conditions lead to unsanitary conditions and negatively impacts the health of the residents, especially the young and the old.
In these situations, basic tasks like storing food and cooking a meal become very difficult. In order to make gains in quality of life, a home is needed.
