The Romero Vera Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - José and Eva and their granddaughter María 

Dates of Birth - José 6/16/1931, Eva 5/3/1941, Maria 10/9/1992

Occupation and Salary - None of the family members are employed. They depend on the support of organizations like Help the Helpless for their basic needs. 

Our Story - José and Eva have been married for 69 years. Their granddaughter spends a lot of time with them and is their primary caretaker. José has to spend a lot of time in the hospital due to his poor health. He suffers from many ailments, including difficulty walking, heart failure, and kidney problems. Despite his problems, he remains a very hopeful and cheerful man, with a strong belief in God and a great love for the Holy Eucharist. Eva also remains very joyful. She is glad to spend this time with her husband, and she trusts that God will never abandon them. 

They own their house and have access to electricity, but not running water. They have to buy their water. 

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.
