Hogar de Esperanza thanks you for your support to Guachapala families

One-year old Isabella was born prematurely, and has not yet caught up to the size nor the abilities of other babies her age. Doctors said that she was failing to thrive, and needed special formula and vitamins to give her small body a nutritional boost. Fulfilling this recommendation was out of reach for her family, farmers from Guachapala who lived off the land with little disposable income, and these items being very expensive. But being a small town, the municipal government of Guachapala knew each and every family by name, and each one’s blessings and struggles alike. While they did not have the resources to help little Isabella, these warm-hearted leaders took the initiative to find her the help she needed.

Last Friday, Hogar de Esperanza visited Guachapala, a rural farming community near Paute. With the support of our generous donors, we delivered hope – in the form of nonperishable food, diapers, medicines and vitamins – to 18 families with young children, all in dire need. Working closely with the government of Guachapala, these special families and their needs were identified. On Friday, we went together, from family to family, to meet the needs of each one individually, including those with special needs babies. The sincere gratitude they expressed was overwhelming. And the honor we felt in helping little Isabella, and the many children and families in a similar, difficult situation, is all the thanks we needed. We share that with all of you, our supporters – we could not have done any of this without you. Thank you so much for helping us to help assist our neighbors in Guachapala.
