We are very excited to announce another new development in our partnership journey. Covenant World Relief will be partnering with the ministries here in Ecuador to vulnerable children and the medically underserved. Covenant World Relief, the humanitarian aid ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church who participates in God’s transforming mission in the world through disaster relief and community development among the most vulnerable will be partnering with The Santiago Partnership, IPEE (Iglesia del Pacto Evangelico del Ecuador) and FACE (Fundacion Adelanto Communitario Ecuatoriano).
We have told you that although both the Intervention Program and Prevention programs are supported by the government, they are not fully funded. Covenant World Relief will be providing the finances not provided by the Ecuadorian government for both of these programs, the intervention and prevention. By these funds being provided, it will free up the Santiago Partnership budget to be able to serve in other ways, like an additional careworker for the Home for At Risk Children, finishing construction for the second floor of the Home or even saving money for opening a second Home for At Risk Children! Isn’t that amazing to dream about?
