After many years of planning and talking and praying and working, we are so happy that 2017 was the year that the Home for At Risk Children has finally opened. We are already serving 11 children thanks to our past donors. The first child we received, Mikal, was 3 years old when he came to us in June 2017. His parents were going through a difficult custody dispute, and Mikal was left neglected. However, things turned around for him and his family in working with our staff. He was able to be reunified with his mother after passing a time of recovery and therapy. Now they will continue to be a part of our ministry as they will be attending church at our partner congregation in Cayambe. How exciting is that?
Will you join us as we strive to help even more children and families in 2018 by partnering with our “Welcome Home” Campaign? We are welcoming you to our Home for At Risk Children as we have now opened. Even a little bit goes such a long way. The Santiago Partnership has a goal to raise $15,000 to ensure that the community of Cayambe, Ecuador continues to have adequate assistance. Below you will see different options of tangible things that help the children in the Home. When these children come to the home, the majority come with just what clothes they have on them and nothing else. Some have not had a substantial meal in weeks, and most have shoes with holes if they have them at all. It may seem simple, but even small gifts can change the lives that these children have known up until now.
If you are looking for a way to invest and help change lives, look no further because that is happening right now, and you can be a part of it!
Join our “Welcome Home” campaign and help us change lives in Ecuador!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Ecuador!
