Hey guys, Destin Here.
I'm not sure if you are aware, but Nicaragua is kind of a dumpster fire at the moment. Political unrest has made it difficult for people to get food. This campaign is being hosted by a buddy of mine named Adam. Whether you are a person of Faith or not, I think we can agree that helping people get food is a big deal. Adam has figured out how to get rice and beans to people that have been cut off from all supplies, because of barricades blocking the roads throughout the country and making travel very difficult. For over two weeks these people have not worked and public transportation is unavailable. We are calling this "The Motorcycle Rice Run". Adam has spent the last year living and working in the town of Jinotega and has a logistical connection that involves purchasing dry goods on one side of the district and using motorcycles to navigate the supplies through to the other side of the district. The supplies would ultimately arrive in one of the remote villages that have been cut off. Obviously, this solution is not sustainable, but the goal right now is to get emergency food relief to 700 families living in this village. I know that many of you do not share my faith, so I wanted you to know that Adam's normal ministry consists of child development for children living in extreme poverty. Due to the circumstances, this campaign is isolated from Adam's usual work, and funds donated to this effort will be used strictly for getting food and supplies to these people. You have my word.
