The Vélez Lovatón Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of José and María, and their four children: Miriam, Moisés, Dayanara, and Héctor. 

Dates of Birth - José 2-7-1989, María 12-15-1991, Miriam 4-24-2009, Moisés 1-29-2010, Dayana 6-12-2011, Héctor 1-24-2018

Occupation and Salary - José works as a garbage collector and makes about 3 to 4 dollars daily.  However, on a good day he can make up to $10. He is the only one in the family that works. 

Our Story -  The family lives together in a house that they rent. They pay $25 monthly for it. It is in terrible condition, and they have no running water. They are in a very unstable financial situation largely due to José's former addiction to drugs. He does not struggle with it now, but he caused his family much suffering in the past. They barely have enough money to pay the rent, and the two youngest children suffer from malnutrition. 

They are able to enroll the three oldest children in online school, but since they have no internet, they are having a hard time. The teacher comes by their house to bring them materials, and María helps them to complete their work.  

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.
