Occupation and Salary - Karen does not have a job outside the home. as she takes care of her children.  She receives $50 per month from the government as a subsidy for impoverished families.

Our Story - Karen separated from her husband after he attempted to sexually abuse his older daughter, Ashley.  From that moment, Karen fell into despair.  Ashely also suffered a lot from the situation with her father and even attempted suicide.  Karen said they were like that until they received a visit from Fr. Kevin, who is from the Home of the Mother (the nuns and priests who partner with Help the Helpless to work with the poor in Ecuador).  With his help, they were able to find healing and learn to put their trust in God.  Ashley also finds healing in therapy.  

They own the home they live in, which has electricity but no 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.
