The Veliz Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Santa and Manuel, a married couple with two daughters, Carmen and Ana. Their three grandchildren-- Pamela, Manuel, and Fernanda-- also live with them. 

Occupation and Salary - Isabel works as a domestic worker and receives $30 a week.  Her husband is a builder by trade but is currently unable to find work.  Their daughters are studying agriculture at the university, and their grandchildren are in elementary school. 

Our Story -  The family owns a wood and brick house in Chone.  It is in good condition, although frequently affected by the mudslides which are common in the area. The house has electricity, but the family must rely on the nearby river for their water. 
The members of the family struggle with various illnesses, as Santa has severe hyperextension, and Manuel is a diabetic with no way of receiving treatment. Additionally, one of their daughters suffers from respiratory problems, and the other is currently receiving treatment for stomach cancer.  
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.
