Donations of food and basic needs.
Sponsor a Family
As soon as we perceived the destitution that devastates so many families in the poorest areas of Ecuador, one of the first initiatives we undertook through GMHM was bringing canastas, baskets of food, and basic hygiene products to the needy. In 2007, this initiative developed into the “Sponsor a Family” project: poor families can sign up for monthly canastas, and our volunteers give each family a canasta in the name of their sponsor, a benefactor from GMHM.
In addition to the monthly canastas, we also help with other concrete needs of our poor families, such as home-renovations or basic household items. We have hired an Ecuadorian member of the Home of the Mother to realize monthly visits to the families with the help of other volunteers. The Servant Sisters also frequently visit our sponsored families. Through these visits we make sure to care for the family on a human and on a spiritual level. Sponsor a family! It costs $37 per month.
Due to the economic crises in several western countries, many sponsors have had to withdraw their monthly contribution. We strongly encourage those who feel inspired to sponsor a family to do so as soon as possible, and to invite their friends and acquaintances to do the same.
With $37 a month, you can sponsor a needy family.
