The López Véliz Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Rubén, his wife Erika, and their two sons, Darío and Yoryi.

Dates of Birth - Rubén 12/28/1984, Erika 03/08/1988, Darío 01/04/2005, Yoryi 02/05/2007.

Occupation and Salary -  Rubén works as a mason's assistant. Erika stays home to look after the house and the children, who are both in school. 

Our Story - The family lives together in a house that was given to them by the government after the 2016 earthquake destroyed everything they owned. It is in good condition, and they are able to pay $24 monthly for electricity and running water. 

During the pandemic, they suffered much because Rubén was unable to find work, and they did no have enough money for food. They were able to get some help from Erika's mother, even though she too is poor.  Now that Rubén has found employment as a mason's assistant, the family hopes that he will have this job for a long time. 

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.
