Friends of Morazan are hosting a stall on Sunday the 4th of August at Goldney Gardens in Clifton for the Amnesty International Garden Party. The event will comprise everything from children’s games, authentic Nigaraguan gifts and raffles (with prizes!). This is a great opportunity to support Bristol’s link with Nicaragua and Puerto Morazan, and should make for a fantastic day.
Thank you to Sefton Park for their donations which have paid for water filters in Nicaragua
FoM raised £3,500 towards the costs of the new “Carussel Plan Barrio” preschool in a barrio of Tonala in Puerto Morazan. BLINC donated £1500 from the money raised at this year’s Copa Sandino charity football for Nicaragua event. Previously the children held classes in the open under a tree or shared a small space in the primary school next door. The building will be used by 30 under fours and also by the community.
Here is the website that details the project, archives some of the events & artwork, offers radio interviews by Latin Americans in Bristol
