Núr Foundation, integral support to families in Cuenca, get to know us

Hello! We want to introduce ourselves, we are Fundación Núr, an organization that assists many families in need in Cuenca.

The foundation implements and offers free training programs for vulnerable children and adults. For adults, these programs include training in professional development, personal development, family guidance, and the importance of values. We work with children in values and virtues, art, languages, school support, medical and dental supervision, and recreation. We have developed these activities in Cuenca and nearby rural areas.

The health, economic and social crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to address many more issues than expected. To address the needs of this families, we began to deliver food kits to each family weekly. In the most critical time of the pandemic, we covered more than 70 families per week.

From March to September 2020, we have provided 1128 food kits. Currently, an average of 41 families are supported by the Foundation.

We were able to move our training activities to virtual formats. This way we were able to continue the Bright Gems Program for children and adolescents, and the workshops for mothers/parents. We have also carried out the 2020 Virtual Summer Camp for the kids during their quarantine.

Núr also launched the Solidarity Family Support Program, a free training plan for families to identify and develop their skills and talents to generate their own income; it includes care for their children, food aid for the family group, access to the solidarity wardrobe, creation and consolidation of entrepreneurial initiatives of families, and psychological, socio-emotional and spiritual accompaniment.

The Núr Foundation team has the support of volunteers and collaborators from different countries who offer their time and knowledge in a great spirit of solidarity.

As many families hope that we can continue with our services, our need for support and donations is still high. This is a great challenge under the current circumstances and we need your help.
