Managua, Nicaragua

VALABLE AID ARRIVES FROM THE UNITED STATES

It will benefit 18 northern rural municipalities and the Atlantic Coast

By Mayela Rodriguez

Solidarity has no boundaries. Under this premise, the U.S.-based humanitarian organization, “Wings of Valor” brought to Nicaragua a valuable shipment consisting of medical supplies and school materials, which will be distributed in 18 municipalities of northern Nicaragua and the Atlantic Coast.

The donation valued at over half a million dollars was received by Arnoldo Aleman, President of Nicaragua, and First Lady Maria Fernanda Flores de Aleman, in the presence of Oliver P. Garza, U.S. Ambassador.

The shipment was transported under the auspices of the Denton Program of the U.S. military, which serves to support non-governmental organizations, which donate goods to different countries in the world.

President Aleman praised the work of Janet Ray Weininger, founder of “Wings of  Valor” who has been instrumental in providing assistance to rural areas destroyed by Hurricane Mitch.

“Without being Nicaraguan, she cares about our people, specially the distressed in habitants of the Coco River and the town of Wiwilí which lost everything to Hurricane Mitch. [Janet], a U.S. citizen, has demonstrated her sensitivity toward others in need. She came with assistanc4e immediately after the hurricane struck.  She is also a good friend of commissioner Reboredo”, stated the President.

Mrs. Ray Weininger explained that the donated goods were collected in several cities of the United States and they include medicines, wheel chairs, beds, clothes, and school materials.

Ambassador Garza stated that his government expects to continue providing support to cooperative programs for Nicaragua.  He added, “This is the third flight which arrived.  This is additional assistance, which is made up of donations collected by private U.S. citizens.  The U.S. Air Force puts its planes to their disposition to transport donations to the countries where the assistance is needed,” added the U.S. diplomat.

The distribution of the donations earmarked to the rural municipalities will be coordinated by the Organization of American States (OAS).
