$260 CAD on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua

Funds raised from my birthday fundraiser in January 2020 have been used to not only help communities in Cameroon but also schools on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua. I am happy to say that $260 CAD has been donated to two schools on the island. The money definitely went a long way, and I am grateful for those who donated and those on Ometepe Island who helped me organize fundraiser purchases and the delivery of items. Below I have included information about these two schools and the items purchased.

Escuela el Madroñal

2,960 C$ (Nicaraguan Cordobas) were sent to Escuela el Madroñal on Ometepe Island to purchase face masks, sanitizing gel, hand towels, soap, bleach, a bucket and a white board. A special thank you to Guiddel Cajina for helping me organize this!

La Escuelita los Ramos

3,800 C$ have been used to provide cleaning supplies, notebooks and pencils to La Escuelita Los Ramos on Ometepe Island. A special thank you to Miguel Lopez for picking up and delivering the supplies. Also a special thank you to Flor de Maria Aleman Jaenz and Fidel Aleman.

Once again a huge thank you to those who donated:

Jennifer Krausewitz, Jenny Greidanus, Irene Galea, Marina Chavarría Alvarez, Glenn Williamson, Hayley Preece, Victoria Kay, Johanna Krebs, Sharon & Andy Hockin, Caroline Boccia, Jenna Lehocki, Vikram Sainadh, Amanda Reynolds, Haiden Vollebregt, Eve Moss, Karlee Vizi, Brian and Ann-Marie Fernandez, Paul and Christine Richardson.
