Nicaragua Trip Information

The civil unrest these past 2 years has taken its toll on the communities we have served for so many years.  We have decided to return with a small group to determine if the time is good to return to this beloved country.  

You are welcomed to join a small team heading back to Chacraseca April 13-18, 2020.  We understand that our favorite hotel is re-opened and that restaurants are again open.  If you would like to join us on this exploratory trip - we would love to have you.  We plan to have 3 or 4 clinics and assess the needs going forward.  

Partners in Nicaragua are JustHope and Tim Case International Ministries
