The Cadeño Avila Family

Members of the Family: This family consists of José, born July23rd 1952, and his wife Robertina, born May 29th, 1958

Occupation and Salary: José and Maria do not work

Our Story: José used to find work as a field worker.  He picked coffee, corn, and cocoa.  He is no bedridden after suffering a stroke.  He suffers from alzheimers and schizophrenia and now requires diapers and continual care. Robertina has always been a housewife. She suffers from high blood pressure.  She spends a lot of time in bed and finds it difficult to take care of her husband.  The couple used to live in a cane house, but now they live with their daughter so that the family can help care for them.  

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.
