SST AT SEVENTY #7 Jubilee Community
In the afternoon after visiting La Chureca, we visit The Center for Development in Central America in Ciudad Sandino just outside Managua. It is a project of the Jubilee Community, Inc., a non-sectarian faith-based community that was founded to address the immense poverty in Central America. Ciudad Sandino has the largest population density in the country and is Nicaragua’s poorest city. Most of its 150,000 residents are part of Nicaragua’s 80% population that lives on less than $2 a day. The only jobs available to most of them are in the sweatshop factories in the free trade zone; jobs that pay low wages, treat workers poorly and provide little job security.

Secondhand Smoke Exposure.
HOW CAN I LOWER MY RISK AND PROTECT MY FAMILY?
To protect yourself and your family, there are important steps you can take:
Don’t allowing smoking indoors or in a vehicle at anytime.
Visit only those restaurants and businesses that are 100 percent smokefree. Separate “no smoking” sections DO NOT completely protect you from secondhand smoke. Neither does filtering the air or opening a window.
Encourage your community leaders to implement policies that make all indoor workplaces and public places, including restaurants and bars, smokefree.
Take special precautions to ensure that family members who have heart disease or a risk factor for heart disease avoid secondhand smoke exposure.
If you are a smoker, get help to quit by calling the Indiana Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW. The Quitline is a free, confidential service for all adult Hoosiers age 18 and over.
