Quiet lives have been disrupted but the 4Walls Project continues building houses in Nicaragua.
Conflicts between competing interests have created serious political strife in Nicaragua since April 2018. The situation grew severe enough for the U.S. Embassy in Managua to withdraw staff and issue an advisory for U.S. travelers.Our little town of El Sauce has been quiet during this time, avoiding any involvement in the unrest. Thankfully this means the 4Walls Project is still in operation, even without our normal parade of volunteers from the United States. We are in operation because most of the construction is done by people of the town — the project hires local masons and the family receiving the house helps with the work, often enlisting friends and other relatives. Materials, including all the bricks for the house, are sourced locally too.
Our friends in El Sauce continue to inspire us with their irrepressible resilience and hope. They need us now more than ever.
