Due to the health crisis and compulsory isolation to stop the spread of the coronavirus, hundreds of vulnerable children were sent home to continue their education online. However, low income families or foster children are not able to afford a device to keep on learning.

We ask for your donations which will be used to purchase mini-laptops that will be donated to them. Our goal is to buy 500 devices this year! Would you help us to achieve this goal?

Currently, our children's hospital needs an ambulance to serve its community. Those few minutes before a child reaches the emergency room can make the difference between life and death.

 

Hospital León Becerra de Guayaquil  (HLBG) provides comprehensive health services through its outpatient, emergency, and observation areas to low-income children.  Due Covid-19 rhe Health System collapsed and many ambulances were broken down beyond repair. That is the case of the HLBG ambulance. We are seriously concerned that many children with life-threatening diseases can quickly deteriorate or die if they are not transported to a hospital in a prompt manner. 

Due to the health crisis and compulsory isolation to stop the spread of the coronavirus, hundreds of vulnerable families in extreme poverty -who work day to day to be able to feed their families in Guayaquil, Ecuador- are the most affected. 


Diakonía Food Bank provides food to more than 42,000 beneficiaries and asks for your donations which will be used to purchase food that will be donated to families in urgent need. We have raised $25,000! Help us reach our target of $100,000 to save more lives.

"Fundación Casa Ronald McDonald" and HGSCA understand that helping a sick child fight their illness takes a huge emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. 

"Fundación Casa Ronald McDonald" helps to address those problems, whether it be housing near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community.
