AMOS depends on the generosity of hundreds of individuals, foundations, churches, universities, organizations, and corporations. We are committed to accountability, transparency, and good stewardship of our resources.
How AMOS was Funded in 2018:
2018 was a challenging year for us financially. In previous years, delegations (mission teams) and volunteers helped fund our community health projects, and outside groups renting our guesthouse generated revenue for programs and administrative expenses.
But last April, everything changed. After the start of the crisis in Nicaragua, every delegation and volunteer cancelled or postponed their travel plans.
In the midst of sudden revenue losses, we had to make difficult decisions. We increased our fundraising efforts monumentally to maintain our core program needs. We were forced to make significant reductions in administrative expenses, examine program expenses closely, and lay off staff.
2019 will continue to be challenging. Some delegations and volunteers are returning to serve alongside us in Nicaragua, but not at the same rate as previous years. Fewer outside groups are renting our guesthouse and facilities. All of this will continue to have a significant impact on our budget and activities.
But you give us hope. You allow us to continue to provide effective and empowering health care for those who need it most. Please keep praying that AMOS and our community health workers can continue improving health. And pray for a peaceful solution to the crisis, so that the children and families in Nicaragua will not live through violence and can have health and hope.
