"The determined Nicaraguan women pictured here are carrying heavy bags of emergency food and other essentials, gifts from you. Thanks to your generosity, we continue to provide this assistance year-round, not just at the holidays. Many families suffer great hunger and these bags contain rice, beans, corn, cooking oil and other basics that sustain them for several weeks. We also provide substantial contributions for food and rent to Long Island families in Brentwood and Wyandanch. We hope you will continue to help."
