Since April 18th in Nicaragua more than 300 people have been killed, thousands have been injured and an unknown number are still missing due to the violent repression being used by the government through the National Police and anti-insurgence forces consisting of pro-government civilians.
This is an escalating crisis, affecting innocent civilians that are exercising their right to freedom of expression, fair elections, transparency, and the resignation of the unconstitutional President Daniel Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo.
Who is being killed? Mostly young university students from low income families, leaving behind pregnant wives and/or small children.
We, a group of Nicaraguan women, deeply saddened by the loss of innocent lives and the impact on their families, ask YOU to help fund our cause and lessen the economic burden of the victims' families. All the money will be used to provide:
- meals to be taken to the hospitals for families of the injured
- meals for the mothers waiting outside of prisons for the release of their children
- funeral arrangements of the deceased
- economic aid for the families that have lost loved ones (so far close to 50 families have been visited, but there is a lot more to be done!)
On behalf of the victim's families we thank you for your support!

In addition here is a song that was composed in tribute to the "Heroes de abril" (April's heroes, in reference to those killed in april during the start of the protests) and that touches our hearts:
