CCFC provides an update amid tensions in the Central American country where we work
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to children, their families and our staff in Nicaragua, as the nation faces unrest.
At this time, our sponsored children are safe, and we are on high alert in communities where we work and in our country office. Our team has been taking precautions to keep safe.
This comes after President Ortega announced changes to Nicaragua’s social security system. It sparked protests — some peaceful, some not — that have led to hundreds of injuries and more than 70 deaths.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.
