VIDA at UD donates to Nicaraguan children!

We have amazing Campus clubs and RSOs across US and Canadian universities and our RSO at University of Delaware is no exception!

UDEL - VIDA Club President, Jessica Applebaum and the rest of the Exec Team members had a donation drive and they collected over 100 items (toys, clothes, candies etc.) which were later shipped to our Regional office in Nicaragua.


On June 7th, 2013 our Nicaraguan staff delivered these donations to a low resource pre-school located in one of our adopted communities in Masaya. This pre-school educates 25 struggling children and we couldn’t be more grateful for the donations that were received.

As our Nicaragua Regional Director, Daisy Jirón said “I’m sure this has made them extremely happy, not just for today, but for the whole year as they finally received a gift”. Our VIDA office in Nicaragua also donated dental cleaning kits to the children and food and drinks for the activity.
