The Bravo Torres Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of the Father, Carlos Bravo, born February 23, 1979.  He is married to Miriam Torres Granda, born March 4, 1975.  Together they have 3 children:  Jesus who is 15, Nathaly who is 14, and Carlos, who is 12.  They also take care of Miriam's sister, Lourdes, who was orphaned and is disabled.

Occupation and Salary - Carlos suffers from epilepsy and thus is disabled.  As such, he is unable to work.  He receives $100 per month in government assistance.  Miriam peels garlic in her home and earns $5 per day for this.  Lourdes also receives $50 per month in government assistance.

Our Story - They live in a house that Lourdes owns in Guayaquil.  The house is made of cement and has 3 rooms.  It is in very poor condition.  The area they live in is very poor and has very high crime.  They live in an invasion area, which means that the area was settled without proper government approval.  As such, it lacks basic municpal services.  
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.
