La Merced is a 501C3 nonprofit organization comprised of volunteers, from all walks of life, who have united for the common goal of helping our neighbors abroad.  We have been focusing on Nicaragua.  Our goals are to produce a long-lasting impact on the access and quality of healthcare there and to deepen mutual understanding between our two nations.
