The Cazorla Tenorio Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Beatriz, born on October 29, 1933, and her husband, Jose, born on July 5, 1952.  

Occupation and Salary - Jose is a baker and earns around $100 per month.  Beatriz does not work.  She receives $40 per month in assistance from the government, which is given to the poor.  

Our Story - Jose and Beatriz are very poor and also have health problems.  Beatriz has arthritis, and Jose has problems with his lungs.  They live in Guayaquil in an area of extreme poverty.  Their house is made of cane and is very deteriorated.  Just outside the front of their house runs a stream of dirty water from all the neighbors.  The house is not entirely enclosed, and they have rats in their house.  Their daughter and her two children are temporarily living with them.  The daughter sells cleaning products and tries to help out a little bit as she is able with the living expenses.  Their monthly expenses for medicine, electricity and household items are $80.  Help the Helpless has helped them to try to improve their home, and we added on a bathroom.  They would be very grateful for a sponsor who will help them with their food expenses each month. 

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.
