Marianito Del Jesus Zambrano Vera and Family

Country – Ecuador

Members of the Family - This family consists of Marianito, the father, whow as born on April 26th, 1970, Nieve, the mother, born on June 28th, 1968, and Nieve's daughter, Cindy, born on May 12th, 2003.

Occupation and Salary - Neither Marianito or Nieves are able to work.  Their only source of income is $100.00 per month that they receive in welfare assistance from the government.  

Our Story - This family is plagued by medical and financial problems.  Marianito is blind and has other health issues.  He has had 3 operations and each year, he receives a scan on his heart.  He has a valve which has to be replaced every 5 years and without it, he cannot even walk.   He also has high blood pressure but can't afford the medicine to control it.  Nieves suffered from polio when she was two years old and as a result, can not walk.  She is in a wheelchair.  Cindy is studying and has no financial resources. Her Godmother pays for her to get to and from school. They use the money they receive from the government to help cover the cost of medicine. Neighbors help them when they need to go to the hospital. They also organize bingo games and use the profits to buy school supplies and Cindy’s uniforms. They have a tricycle that allows them to go shopping.  Cindy is very interested in her studies and would like to go to college to work and help her family.  The volunteers at Home of the Mother in Ecuador have helped them to restore their home because it had serious moisture and sanitary problems.  The whole family lives with great trust in God. They often say, "No for today; tomorrow is another day and there will be."

What Your Sponsorship Provides

When you sponsor a family in Ecuador, your donation supports a monthly gift of food and basic hygiene and cleaning products for the family.  These families are very impoverished and what little income they have is not enough to buy the basic necessities.  Families will also receive monthly visits from volunteers and the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother who not only look after their physical needs but also their spiritual needs.  Any additional funds given beyond the minimum $37 per month will provide other necessities as needed, such as home repairs or basic home utensils.  Additional donations can be made here.

What You'll Receive

As a sponsor, you will receive a newsletter with general updates from our communities in India and Ecuador as well as a letter from your adopted child 3 times per year:  Easter, early fall and Christmas.  We also encourage you to send letters or cards to your adopted child by creating and logging into your account on our website.
