This gofundme initiative will go towards the victims and/or families that have been directly affected by the violence that our good people of Nicaragua are being subjected to.  We are asking for your monetary contribution in order to help ease the suffering of this innocent and courageous people. 

We have contacted FUNIDES (Fundacion Nicaragüense para el Desarollo Económico y Social) who is an independent non profit organization that specializes in the political analysis in the areas of social economic development and institiuonal reforms to be the recipients of the funds collected from your donations and used them to help victims of violence in Nicaragua with medical supplies, food, medical attention and other resources. The funds will be withdraw by Blanca Corea who will deliver them via direct electronic wire transfer to Funides bank account.

On April 19th, 2018 students from all major universities in the city of Managua started a peaceful protest against reforms to the social security system that the Nicaraguan government enacted by decree, undemocratically and illegally. Those reforms will increase contributions and reduce retirees benefits considerably.  With this government measure the elderly  who now receive an average of less than $100.00 a month will now have an addional reduction of 5% a month. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Americas and has one of the  lowest per capita income.  The peaceful reaction from the students was met with extreme force from the government, resulting in more than sixty deaths and counting, hundreds of injured and many still unaccounted for.   


Los fondos que se recauden en esta colecta de gofundme serán destinados a las víctimas directas de los actos de violencia perpetrados en días recientes contra el pueblo de Nicaragua y a sus familias. El estudiantado de las principales universidades del país inició el 19 de abril protestas pacíficas contra las reformas al Seguro Social que el gobierno promulgó por decreto, antidemocrática e ilegalmente.

Estas reformas aumentarían los impuestos destinados al seguro social, y paralelamente reducirían, considerablemente, las pensiones de los jubilados actuales. El gobierno respondió a las protestas con mano dura: no solo lanzó a los cuerpos antimotines de la Policía Nacional contra las pacíficas manifestaciones, sino que envió a grupos paramilitares de choque de la llamada Juventud Sandinista a atacar a los manifestantes.
 
El conteo de heridos y muertos es impreciso en estos momentos, ya que el gobierno suprime sistemáticamente la información, llegando incluso a cerrar durante varios días los pocos canales de noticias que aún son independientes. Nicaragua es el segundo país más pobre de América (después de Haití); URGE tu ayuda para aliviar el sufrimiento de su valiente pueblo: el gobierno impide que los hospitales públicos den asistencia médica, incluso de emergencia, a los heridos en la protesta.


We are a group of friends who reside in The United States and would like to help those who are suffering after the terrible events that have been unfolding in our beautiful country of origin, Nicaragua.
