Capacita is an intiative of Community Living Windsor that provides medical aid and anti-convulsant medication to people with disabilities in Nicaragua...the poorest of the poor. Founded in 2000, this humanitarian effort also supports the development of family networks in advocating for a system to provide greater care for their vulnerable children.
