About this Campaign

Now More Than Ever
We are so grateful for the generosity of our supporters, who have helped us provide assistance to thousands in greatest need here in Cuenca, Ecuador since the COVID-19 crisis began. We could not have done any of this without you!

As Covid continues, we are still raising money to help people in need during the pandemic an we increased our goal to 15,000$.

Every time we hear that familiar knock on the door, our hearts sink a bit with the thought of, “Will we be able to help, or will we be forced to turn them away?” The knocks come at all hours of the day and night and have been steadily increasing as the crisis goes on. Is it another mother who cannot feed her children? Someone with a sick baby? Someone who has been searching all day for food and now at 10 pm is knocking at our door because they are desperate? Someone escaping violence?

We have seen it all. Crying mothers. Crying men. Crying grandmothers. Sick babies. Pregnant women. In wheelchairs. On crutches. Some carried. Disabled. Cancer. HIV. Scared. Living on the street. Eating out of garbage bins. Eating nothing at all for days.

The economy has taken a sharp downturn, which affects the poor most severely. Those who depend on a daily wage, barely eking by to convert their meager earnings into food each day, are still struggling to recover and survive. Young single mothers, the elderly, the sick, the homeless, and those with chronic illnesses all continue to come to us for help.

We want to answer that call. But the requests are many, and resources are few. We are appealing to you to help us help those in dire need.

Use of Funds

During this crisis, we have provided over 25,000 meals and provided food baskets to over 5,000 people. Each food basket costs $30 to supplement a balanced diet for a family of 5.

For every $2,500 we raise, we can meet the needs of 400 people for one week. Together, we can bring relief to those who need it most right now.

Thank you so much! We could not do any of this without you.
