Kids of Cascabel
Helping the Kids of Cascabel began in January 2006 when musician-flutemaker Erik Sampson and his wife Linda met pastor Carlos Baez who had rescued 18 children from scavenging at the local garbage dump in Somoto, Nicaragua. Since that meeting in 2006, a small diverse group of people have helped to support Flutemaker Ministries to assist these children who had no home. As of 2012, Flutemaker Ministries has built a two-story ministry center that currently houses 25 children. From this center of blessing many other children and struggling families have been helped with food, medical needs, educational opportunities and the establishment of micro-businesses.
Director Pastor Carlos Baez also reaches out into the mountainous areas by overseeing more than 500 feeding centers, operated through strategic partnership with Samaritans International and Feed My Starving Children. Through these feeding centers, children who suffer from malnutrition or food deprivation eat a nutrient-dense meal at least four times a week, which will improve overall physical and mental health.
