The Ortiz Heredero Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Hector, the father, born on May 11, 1987, his wife, Jadira, born on August 7, 1982, and their five children, ranging in age from 16 to 5.  The eldest child, Luis, suffers from an intellectual disability, for which he does not receive any help.

Occupation and Salary - Hector works as a builder, but is not always able to get work. He makes minimum wage, which is $386 per month, though frequently he is out of work.  Jadira cleans houses and earns $240 per month.

Our Story - They live in Guayaquil in an area of extreme poverty.  In this area, there are many squatters, and the crime is very high.  Although they own their own house, it is in very bad shape.  It is made of bamboo and does not have any walls.  This means that they all share the same space for living, cooking, and sleeping.  Their income does not cover all their living expenses, so they are in need of a sponsor to help with their food expenses each month.   

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.
