The Mera Bazurto Family

Location: Chone, Ecuador

Members of the Family: The family is made up of Carlota and Douglas and their children Douglas Johan, Lisbeth, Nathaly, Ashley, and Douglas Franshesco. 

Dates of Birth: Carlota (05/29/1978), Douglas (03/25/1982), Douglas Johan (04/06/2002), Lisbeth (07/15/2004), Nathaly (07/11/2008), Ashley (07/17/2017) and Douglas Franschesco (04/23/2020)

Occupation and Salary: Carlota is a housewife who receives $50 a month in government assistance, and Douglas is a delivery driver who earns around $5 a day.  

Our Story: The family has debt they are trying to get out due to falling behind on electricity bills, rent, and internet.  Douglas works as a delivery driver, and used to make decent money, but the local drivers formed a union and he was not allowed in, so now he struggles to get delivery jobs. The children work hard at school.  Douglas Johan just finished 4 semesters at nursing school, and Lisbeth graduated high school and took the univerity entrance exams.  Nathaly and Ashely are both students.  

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.
