CABEI presents a donation for specialized care to Nicaraguan Boys and Girls
The contribution is in response to the ongoing support the Bank brings to the human development of the countries of the Central American Region.
Managua, August 11, 2020.- As a gesture of solidarity in Nicaragua, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) has made it possible to strengthen the specialized medical care and the acquisition of prioritized medicines for low-income boys and girls, through a financial contribution of close to 25 thousand dollars that was granted to five organizations.
These donations are part of CABEI’s Environmental and Social Corporate Responsibility System (SASC) and were approved in order to support the most vulnerable sectors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Operation Smile was one of the first organizations receiving this support, which provided free medical care to 350 low-income patients with congenic malformations.
Also with this support, the Nicaraguan Association in Pro of Burned Children and the Diabetic Parents and Youth Association of Nicaragua, are now able to guarantee medical supply and periodic replacement material, as well as the purchase of insulin, protection material and self-control kits for new diagnosed cases.
The Bank’s social and humanitarian work also enabled the purchase of food and personal groceries to 200 children from five homes that are managed by the religious nuns association “Hermanas Siervas del Divino Rostro”; and similarly the Noble Nicaraguan Fire Department received support for the acquisition of personal protection equipment and supplies to fight COVID-19.
In this manner, CABEI continues joining efforts and giving hope to the most vulnerable population of the region.
