¡Bienvenidos a Ecuador! Ecuador: our home — a beautiful country in the middle of the world! Known for the unique Galapagos Islands, the mighty Andes, the mysterious Amazon jungle–all within a couple of hours flight from each other….so easy to get to; so easy to fall in love with…
But what will grab your heart from the start are the smiling faces of its children. Even though many live in poverty, they are truly joyful.
It has been about 8 or 9 months since our last correspondence! During this time, there have been a lot of good things happening in Casa Victoria, our favorite NGO in Ecuador:
1) In 2016, received a donation of 12 laptops from the Huawei company, for computers station for the children!!
Children and CV members receiving the laptops at the Huawei event
2) Donated by a private Ecuadorian company, synthetic grass for the small soccer field!! What a difference! Beautiful!
Volunteers vs kids….!!
3) A church mission team from Minnesota blessed Casa Victoria by helping to adapt a wasted space into the children´s eating area–very needed as they did not have one!
Shatter-proof glass cover for lots of light and warmth during lunch time
4) A USA University team of students transformed our front yard into a beautiful flower-filled garden!
Come see for yourself! Be a volunteer at Casa Victoria through Ecuador Mi País and help these beautiful, but very poor children, expand their minds, their hearts, their skills.
