Food parcels for street peddlers

street peddlers

Seventy-six-year-old Margarito and his wife Carlota cannot afford to own land, but live with several of their children on the edge of a city street in Nicaragua. They cook and sell corn, tortillas, and other food. They also peddle vegetables to make a living. Margarito cannot afford to buy a cart to peddle their goods, so they need to rent a cart each afternoon.

Margarito and Carlota were thankful for the rice, canned chicken, and other food in the 45-pound Nicaragua-Adopt-A-Family parcel they received. A staff member said, “[Margarito’s] smile tells the story.” Thank you, supporters, for easing the burden of Nicaraguan families like Margarito and Carlota!
