The Carreño Sánchez Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - José and Stephanie (married couple)

Dates of Birth - José 6/22/1999, Stephanie 5/28/2003

Occupation and Salary - Jose and Stephanie are both currently unemployed and dependent upon their parents and organizations like Help the Helpless for financial assistance. 

Our Story - Jose suffered an accident a year ago that cost him his leg. Although his parents have been very supportive, he suffers much because he cannot provide for his wife, who is pregnant with their first child. A family friend who works as a journalist is campaigning to raise money to buy him a prosthetic leg. He is very excited about this opportunity because it could mean he would be able to go back to work. 

Stephanie is pregnant with her first child. She continues to support José in any way that she can. They live together in a house owned by José's brother. They have access to electricity and running water. 

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.
