The Reina Ganchozo Family

Location: Portoviejo, Ecuador

Members of the Family: Antonio and Herlen

Dates of Birth: Antonio (05/19/1954) and Herlen (04/17/1969)

Occupation and Salary: Antonio does not work, Herlen cleans houses three times a week, and washes laundry to earn money.  

Our Story: Antonio can no longer walk well due to worn out bones.  He also has hypertension and diabetes.  He had surgery three years ago to try and help his knees, but he is now in worse shape.  Not being able to work and support his family causes him great suffering.  Herlen is deaf, but a very joyful and positive woman.  The couple are not married in the Church, but Herlen would like to be.  They own their home, but paying the electricity and water bill is a great burden for them.   

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.
