Around the world, international travel has come to nearly a screeching halt. But the needs for those in need have increased dramatically. So what can we do?

A local ministry, Twelve Churches, has come up with a creative solution by partnering with on-the-ground help in Nicaragua to supply much-needed food to families with tremendous need.
