The Plua Quijije Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Francisca and her four children María, Edison, Luis and Darwin. Francisca's mother Maria also lives with the family. 

Dates of Birth - Francisca 8-28-1969, María 4-11-2006 (Edison, Luis, Darwin, Maria: all unknown)

Occupation and Salary - Francisca and her daughter help to recycle things to support their family. 

Our Story -  All of the members of the family suffer from mental disabilities. Francisca is the only one who has been diagnosed, and her diagnosis came back as epilepsy. She is currently being evaluated by the National Council for Disability Equity. Only one of her children is in school (María), and she is enjoying it very much. The other children suffer from learning difficulties and have not been able to attend school. 

The family lives together in a small house in a very marginalized area of Ecuador. Francisca struggles to support the family, and they often do not even have enough money for basic necessities.

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.
