TAC - Team Action for Christ in Peru


Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the entire world. Over 50% of its people live below the poverty level and 80% of the country lives on less than $2 a day with many entire families living on less than $ 1 a day. The slums of Nicaragua are extensive and many families in the slums or the outer lying country areas live in homes made of cardboard with dirt floors. Throughout much of this war torn country health care is non-existent and malnutrition is compounded by the many deadly diseases that commonly strike the poor of this country. The most common of these diseases are Malaria, Dengue Fever, Typhoid Fever, and Hepatitis A. Malaria and

Dengue Fever are spread through infected insects while Hepatitis A and Typhoid Fever are spread through contaminated water or food with the most common contaminate being fecal matter. The TAC Granite family, through Team Action for Christ, has personally purchased and delivered to Nicaragua many basic living needs such as food, clothing, toiletries, bibles, and toys. During the TAC family’s several trips to Nicaragua they have helped build wells for clean drinking water and delivered the non-perishable food stuffs, clothes, toiletries, bibles, and toys to some of the poorest areas for the people in need.

Many children do not have a single toy and frequently babies are born and the family has no clothes to dress them in. These efforts have brought much joy and hope however they have barely touched the tip of the iceberg. The TAC Granite family is committed to continuing their physical and spiritual relief efforts until the people of this county are no longer suffering. The following pictures show Fernando and the TAC Granite family on their latest trip to Nicaragua, where they went into the deep country areas and delivered food, clothes, bibles, and toys to some of Nicaragua’s poorest citizens.
