nicaragua top banner
Join Hope Without Borders (HWB) during May 2017 for an adventure in the tropics! We will stay in Managua and during the day we will go into the barrios (slums) and deliver health care and training to adults and school children. This is not for the faint of heart as you will be in temperatures of 90-106F during the day and exposed to open wounds and unusual smells. But, you will have a chance to reach people who are really in need. No one leaves unchanged! We will also spend a day traveling to see an active volcano and zip-line in the forest. So, bring your cameras and your sunscreen and join us on this mission of HOPE!
