The Nicaragua Covenant was established in 1986 between the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Churches of Christ [AICN] in Nicaragua. In recent years it was expanded to include connections with the Evangelical Methodist Church of Nicaragua, Fundacion NITCA and El Porvenir. Program support includes a one of a kind Mobile Health Clinic serving 60 communities, approximately 24,000 people, who otherwise would not have access to health/dental care. This clinic travels to Evangelical Methodist, AICN and non-denominational communities as far away as the mountains of Las Segovia and the RAAS on the Eastern coast. Our program support includes a variety of health, education and occupational training, feeding and nutrition, medical, and clean water programs. Every year Delegations travel to Nicaragua to become acquainted with these programs and to build relationships with the people connected to the Nicaragua Covenant ministry.
