What does the word “hell” mean to you? In Nicaragua, there is a 70-acre garbage heap called, “La Chureca”. This landfill is home to about 2,000 people. It is hell on earth. The people there spend their lives digging through trash for food or materials they can sell. Children suffer from mercury and lead poisoning, dehydration, malnutrition and parasite-related diseases. Desperate families often prostitute their daughters to the truck drivers for first access to new garbage. These young girls live in constant fear of rape and abuse.
Your purchase helps rescue the young girls in La Chureca by removing them from the landfill and giving them the support they so desperately need. The girls are placed in a refuge home and remain close to their families while they receive education, job placement, counseling, nutrition and love.
