Drinking coffee from Nicaragua will end up helping those in Nicaragua.
Kimball and Jeff Mapp are raising funds for their medical mission to Tola, Nicaragua April 14-22 with OneWorld Health. Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and the 2nd poorest in the western hemisphere. Access to healthcare in Nicaragua is a major problem, and the infant mortality rate is more than 3x higher than here in the US. They are helping to establish a medical clinic to treat all ages; more specifically the money will go toward direct patient care, medical equipment, medicines (anti-parasitics and vitamins), and eyeglasses.
Perk! will be brewing coffees from Nicaragua all day in honor of their work and proceeds of our sales will be donated to their mission. We’ll also have a collection jar out for anyone who wants to donate!
