The Casanova Murillo Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Luis, María, and their three daughters: Helen, Mía, Maylen. 

Dates of Birth - Luis 1/16/1983, María 5/29/1982, Helen 3/10/2008, 7/22/2013, Maylen 5/26/2015

Occupation and Salary -  Luis is a farmer, and he can make up to $50 monthly. María makes around $30 monthly by cooking snacks and selling them. All three of their children are enrolled in school. 

Our Story -  The family lives together in Playaprieta, Ecuador. Luis and María had been separated for a while, which had a negative impact on their children, especially Helen.  She became very reserved and defensive.  However, now they are living together again.  Maylen, however, remains the angel of her family: she is very docile and cheerful, no matter the situation.  She loves to play with her older siblings.

Luis is not a very hard worker, and as a result, his family suffers financially.  His wife, however, works very hard at her job and hopes to open up her own business someday.  Before the pandemic, she baked and sold magazines and snacks; now she makes and sells masks. 

The family suffers from a lot of medical issues, as Luis was recently operated on for pterygium. Mía has a problem in her feet that affects her knees and hips.  Both María and Maylen have severe allergies and sometimes struggle with breathing. 

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.
