The Sanchez Avila Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family is made up of Gregorio, born on May 11, 1987, and his wife, Rosa, born on May 25, 1988.  They have three sons and a daughter:  Ronald, born October 12, 2004, Ariel, born November 26, 2006, Fabian, born March 8, 2009 and Elena, born December 14, 2011.

Occupation and Salary - Gregorio is only able to find work part-time, loading merchandise.  They call him to work about three days per week, and he makes $12 per day.  Rosa takes care of the house, and also makes $20 per week watching her nephew.

Our Story - Gregorio and Rosa live in Guayaquil in an area which is very poor and crime ridden.  They own the house they live in, but it is in very poor condition.  It is made of bamboo, and there are no walls, which means they sleep, cook and live in the same room.  Their income is not enough to cover all their living expenses.   

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.
