The Moreira Cobeña Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family - Darwin and Erika and their children: Matias, Willians, and Dominic.

Dates of Birth - Darwin 1/15/1982, Erika 8/18/1980, Matias 11/21/2008, Willians 6/16/2013, Dominic 8/25/2017

Occupation and Salary - Darwin sells things in the street. He makes about $8 daily. However, he has been out of work since April due to an accident. They have been supported by their neighbors and by the generosity of the parish ever since.

Our Story - Darwin was hit while on his motorbike and suffered a fracture to his tibia and fibula. He has since lost mobility in his right leg completely and has not been able to work. Erika has been suffering with undiagnosed health issues for some years, and it causes her to faint often. Her doctors have not been able to diagnose her, so she goes untreated. It is becoming much more severe.

Darwin's father helps them with what he can. He seeks fish and already earns very little, but he gives them what he can. Darwin's mother watches the children when Erika is hospitalized, as she often is. 

The family lives in a house that is held up by palm trees. The walls are made out of pressed cardboard. 

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.
