Comedor Santa Clara de Asís

The Saint Clara of Assis Dinning Room is born in 2005 providing meals to 15 of the most malnourished children of the area. With the passing of time, with the goodness of God and of a few families, this group of children has been growing. Today, there are 85 children we help.   This Childrens' Diner is located: From the Shell La Virgen at the exit to Managua, 300 varas toward the Cerro, in Matagalpa, Nicaragua.  Article from the press (La Prensa) Wednesday 12, May 2010 CORRESPONDENT/MATAGALPA Local market merchants support religious work Aid started flowing. Motivated by the moving image of happy children at lunchtime, a group from the South market traders joined forces to donate some products to children dining at Santa Clara de Asis, located in the citadel Salomón Ibarra Mayorga, southwest of the city of Matagalpa . In the dining room the nuns of the Order Franciscan Sisters of the Incarnation care for 35 children, all under 10 years living in the citadel and the surrounding neighborhoods Francisco Moreno and Manuel Mendoza, and the Fatima post.   "Passing the word" local merchants raised a good portion of "bones" of beef, vegetables, legumes and some fruits were delivered on Tuesday, in the shopping center, to Sister Angela Garcia Maradiaga, a founder of the religious order. "It will be the first time that we make a good soup for the kids, because we had no chance of making it," admitted Sister Angela, grateful for the solidarity of the merchants, who offered to further support the noble work of the sisters. "It is moving to see children in such need to eat, so I decided to find how to help even a little bit," said Yamileth Matamoros, one of the merchants who joined the cause. A WORK OF THE LORD He added: "I spoke to my colleagues because I know they never say no and always help, now I will find how to give encouragement to continue helping us every Tuesday, that is the intention. I'll talk to other merchants because even a little, to them (the nuns), serves the children ". Meanwhile Ivania del Carmen Munguia, also a merchant, joined the effort by stating that "we saw the story and we know that these children are in need,  and what they (the nuns) do for these creatures is a work of the Lord and so I fondly contribute, for these children at home may not even get breakfast. " Sister Angela emphasized the generosity and good will of the merchants.  Until now, the children attending the dining room receive the lunch only three days per week, from Tuesday to Thursday. But, with the donations from the  merchants, Sister Angela says it's possible that they can continue to provide meals from Monday to Friday.  The nun said that next May 23 will be the second Children’s Fair in the city of Matagalpa, and by offer of Noel Gonzalez, the organizer and president for the committee of this event, all funds collected will be donated to the dining room to feed the children.
