Color My World volunteers worked today in El Limonal – a community of approximately 4,000 people on the edge of Chinandega, which was severely impacted by Hurricane Mitch in 1998 with our volunteer group. Families were relocated after the hurricane and have made El Limonal their community.
Each week during the summer our groups will serve lunch and continue to build on the relationships we have in place in el Limonal.
El Limonal is often called the triangle of death situated between a cemetery, a garbage dump and drug ridden community.
“In 2009, The Kamloops Fire Fighters Charitable Society with funding from the RLCF saw an opportunity to lend an international helping hand and started “Operation Nicaragua”, sending over shipping containers full of much needed materials including hospital beds, wheel chairs, equipment and supplies. With the help from local Chinandega bomberos (firefighters) the KKFCS and RLCF set up a community centre that today provides meals, limited health services, a place for community gatherings and skills (craft) development”.
Color My World started working in El Limonal in 2013 when we took our first group of volunteers to serve lunch.
