The Mendoza Saltos Family

Location: Portoviejo, Ecuador 

Members of the Family: Daniel, Lourdes, Elvis, Kimberly 

Date of Birth: Daniel (12-15-1984), Lourdes (04-19-1987), Elvis (08-20-2008), and Kimberly (09-09-2011)

Occupation and Salary: Daniel is a day worker, Lourdes is a housewife, and the children Elvis and Kimberly are both students. 

Our Story: Daniel has had epilepsy for the past 14 years.  Due to lack of medication, his epilespy is not under control and because of this, Daniel can only work on the days his illness allows him to.  Often he will have a sudden attack at work and will need to return home to recuperate. When he is able to work, he is paid $12 a day. Often, there is no work for him.   

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.
