Description

Join CityFam for a life-changing experience. For our 6th International Relief Trip we will travel to a third world country to serve the poorest of the poor and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Nicaragua is an exciting and beautiful destination featuring a landscape of volcanoes and lush green tropical forests, but amid the beauty is a place of desperate need. Nicaragua, the poorest country in Central America where the average person makes less than a $2.00 a day.
On this trip we will be working primarily in Cristo Rey, near the city Tipitapa. Most families were moved to this barrio from the dump in the capital city of Managua when the dump was deemed non-livable. Cristo Rey remains an extremely poor and vulnerable community experiencing social problems of drug addiction, alcoholism and low-levels of education and employment. There are an estimated 13,000 families living there. While serving you will have the opportunity to:


1. Build a Community Center and Playground
2. Assist in the feeding program that provides 350 children lunch daily
2. Tutoring children
3. Playing games with the kids
4. Feed lunch and build relationships with the people in the dump

No experience is necessary, just a willing heart. We will be staying at the Quinta Fellowship Guest House.

See pictures and watch the video from our Honduras trip.

Each trip will cost approximately $1800 and include all expenses including: airfare, ground transportation, meals, stay and the projects we will be doing. We will assist you with fundraising, so if you don't mind working a little, money won't be an issue. Space is limited. To secure one of the 30 spots for this trip a $125 non-refundable deposit is required. Send any and all questions to kim@cityfam.com

Change starts with you...Are you ready?

Our first information meeting is Sunday April 7th from 2:30-4:00pm at the CityFam offices, 101 N. Haven st. #301. Click "Going" or "Interested" to get notified with more information.
