The Peñarrieta Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family - Gina and her two sons, Alex and Jean. 

Dates of Birth - Gina 6/1/1963, Alex 3/20/1990, Jean 5/19/1992

Occupation and Salary - Jean works as a painter/house builder and supports his mother and brother. Gina receives $50 monthly from the government in assistance. 

Our Story - Gina had a knee surgery and walks with difficulty. She is no longer able to work because of this. Her husband left her some years ago. The house where they're living belongs to her sister. It is unfinished, and the floor is made of dirt, so they have a plastic sheet over it for insulation. There are no walls to separate the rooms. They have electricity and water sometimes. 

Jean lives in a separate apartment with some friends of his. He sends money to his mother so she can support Alex. Alex has an intellectual disability of 80%. 


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.
