In their own words

8-year old Carlos writes... My father abandoned my mother when she was 6 months pregnant. I do not know anything about him. My mother does the best she can but we are extremely poor. She only earns $120 per month and we live in one room for which she pays $40 per month.

4-year old Jessica writes... My father was seriously injured in an accident so cannot live with us. I live with my sister and my mother in one room. My mother makes a little income sewing clothes but we have a lot of emotional conflicts and financial problems.

11-year old John writes... My father has been in a coma for the past month and the doctors say he may not live. My mother works when she can but because my two brothers are disabled, she has to help take care of them and go to the hospital every day. Often we do not have food, just what we are given by Hogar de Esperanza.

These children will be joining hundreds of other children in similar situations on Dec 15th where you can help give them food, gifts and one incredibly big Christmas Party with clowns, performers and of course, Santa Claus. Hogar de Esperanza will be hosting our annual party for children in difficult situations at the Seminary San Luis in downtown Cuenca. You can attend, meet these children and best of all, you can help make their lives a little bit easier. 

We are only halfway to our goal to support these children and your support is desperately needed. You can contribute online at: you can drop into Esperanza Thrift Shop at Juan Montalvo 8-18 and Marical Sucre daily from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. Each family costs $100 to sponsor. You can either sponsor a whole family or make a smaller contribution. Thank you for your support.
