The Milciades Hipatia Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Justino Milciades and his wife Elena Hipatia. 

Occupation and Salary - Justino takes care of Elena, who is blind. They live off of their neighbor's charity.

Our Story -  In spite of his 77 years, Milciades is a very active and energetic man. He takes care of his wife with great joy.  They are very poor and have no income, and they do not receive aid from the government. Their children already have families and do not visit often, but sometimes help their parents financially. 

Elena is almost completely blind and also suffers from osteoarthritis. She is no longer able to carry out activities around the house. She is grateful to God for giving her an understanding husband who is willing to take care of her in her struggle. 

Despite their poverty, the couple remains strong in the Faith and thanks God for the help they receive, since they know it is God who moves the human heart to do good. 

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.
