About This Location

Managua is the largest urban center in the small Central American nation of Nicaragua, located on the shores of the spectacular volcano-ringed Lake Managua and near the Pacific coast. 

Why You Should Come 

Nicaragua is the second most impoverished nation in the Americas, with 42.5% living below the national poverty line. Ciudad de Sandino, a particularly impoverished area of Managua, came into being as a refuge for flood victims in the 1970's and has continued to take in the refugees of the subsequent civil war, earthquakes and hurricanes that have besieged Nicaragua. In the following decades, the serious problems in these areas have never been adequately addressed, and many residents are still completely lacking infrastructure, stable employment, and access to basic services.

How You Can Help

At the moment there are only “Mobile Clinic” available for this destination. The clinic will provide basic health services, and also serve as an opportunity to learn more about community needs and make plans for long-term development projects. See an example of Mobile Clinic itinerary* below:

*Each Mobile Clinic team will be divided into four different groups; groups will rotate stations throughout the week. Managua is a new destination. Itinerary may change.
