Remarks by U.S. Ambassador to Nicaragua, Laura F. Dogu
Managua, December 5, 2015
I am very proud to witness the generous donation from the organization, Wisconsin-Nicaragua Partners. These seven ambulances are the result of the collection of funds that U.S. citizens attained in their communities for the acquisition of these vehicles and the coordinated effort with the U.S. government to make their transfer to Nicaragua possible.
These ambulances will save lives by providing medical care expeditiously to those in need. Through the Denton program, Wisconsin-Nicaragua Partners, a nongovernmental organization, is making a difference through the relationship between the firefighters in Wisconsin and Nicaragua. To date, the Wisconsin-Nicaragua Partners organization has donated 30 fire trucks and 21 ambulances to Nicaragua.
