Our Story - A few weeks ago, Carmen fell and damaged her knees. They began to swell and hurt very severely. The medication from her doctor has not been working. She has also struggled with bone pain and cramps for some time. Oswaldo has no feeling in his foot from a recent injury. He has joint pain and is not able to hold objects in his hands due to the pain.

In spite of their health issues,the couple has to work every day to support themselves. They own their house, but they have no deed to it, so they are afraid of losing it. 


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.
