The Cedeño Intriago Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - Vicente and Alejandrina, their granddaughter Viviana, and her son Mateo.

Dates of Birth - Vicente 12/10/1937, Alejandrina 6/18/1945, Viviana 8/22/1993, Mateo 2/17/2017

Occupation and Salary - Vicente helps take care of his neighbor's garden and earns $10 weekly. Alejandrina receives $100 monthly from the government in assistance. Viviana does not have a job and remains home to look after her son. 

Our Story - Vicente suffers much because he lost his job at the beginning of the pandemic, and he has not been able to find stable work since. He tries to help garden, but it is not enough to sustain his family. Alejandrina suffers from anxiety and also undiagnosed back problems. 

Mateo is currently in kindergarten, and he is the pride and joy of the family. He is very cheerful and active, despite having an illness affecting his blood. The family has not yet been able to receive medical treatment for him. 

 

The family lives together in the La Palsita community, in the parish of Riochico. They do not have a telephone. 

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.
