Nicaragua Mission

Updated: May 19, 2020

Dr. Merlino answered the call for an urgent request for a female dentist to join a team of other medical professionals headed to Nicaragua January 2011.  The CMDA team served women and children who had been the victims of human trafficking.  House of Hope is a shelter run by an American missionary to help these girls and women get back on their feet by providing education and life skills.  Dr. Merlino worked alongside two Nicaraguan dentists, serving hundreds in less than a week.  Many of these women came to faith or renewed their commitment.  “We worked hard, God worked harder, the girls’ smiles made it all worthwhile!”
