The Mendoza Márquez Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of María and her husband José. 

Dates of Birth - María 04/13/66, José 01/13/1964

Occupation and Salary -  María does laundry from 7AM to 5PM and is paid $10 a day. José does not have a stable job, and thus takes work wherever he can, usually in appliance repair. 

Our Story -  The couple is originally from Venezuela. They have been in Ecaudor for about a year and a half. They have moved around to various places, searching for a better life, but they continue to struggle financially. Their daughter and son-in-law have also moved to Ecuador, but their other children remained in Venezuela.

Their house is in Chone, in the Santa Maria sector.  They do not have money to pay for it, so they have borrowed it from the time being to look after it. The house is in bad shape, and they have to pay for water and electricity out of pocket. They have barely any furniture or possessions to put in the house. 

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.
