In 2020, Nicaragua faced a series of formidable challenges. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, families in rural communities encountered limited access to crucial information and supplies, exacerbated by soaring demand and prices. In response, HKRF stepped in to deliver essential provisions, including food, protective equipment, and toiletries, addressing urgent needs within these underserved communities.


Later that year, two hurricanes hit in less than two weeks the Caribbean coast and the rest of the country experienced heavy rain, flooding and our farmers lost crops and tools, had their houses distroyed and were without electricity for days.

As soon as it was possible, a group of volunteers went to the communities to deliver fortified food
packages to the families.

Improving lives through baseball 

Every year we bring baseball equipment and provide instruction to youth in rural Nicaraguan communities. Baseball has a unique ability to both bring together different cultures and teach life lessons helping to provide a foundation on which to improve lives.
