The Ordonez Bolanos Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family is made up of the Father, Arcenio Ordóñez Segura, born on September 8, 1947. He is married to Bélgica Bolaños Pineda, born on October 7, 1963.  They have three children:  Rusbel, born on July 21, 2002 (9th grade), David, born on September 23, 2004 (8th grade), and Iván, born in 1999.  

Occupation and Salary - Arcenio has a job peeling garlic.  When he is called into work, he earns $5 per day.  He also receives $100 per month in assistance from the government.  Bélgica suffers from a 75% disability. She also helps peeling garlic, and receives $100 per month in government assistance. Their oldest son, Iván, works every now and then at the water deposit, where they pay him $5 per day.    

Our Story - They live in Guayaquil, in a very poor and marginalized area. They own the house in which they live. It is made of bamboo, and it is in very bad condition. It does not have separate rooms; it is all one room.  In addition to their living expenses, they must pay for Belgica's medicine, which is very expensive. 
 
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.
