"When an orphan gives you a smile, they've given you a gift. It's everything they have to give."

James 1:27 New International Version (NIV)

As an organization, we have been visiting orphanages since 2011. At the first orphanage we ever visited, we were overcome with the quantity of unmet basic human needs. There are many orphanages in Ecuador housing children of all ages, some with disabilities, and many who come with heart-breaking stories of abandonment. We regularly visit different orphanages around Ecuador to bring hope, love and the message that they are not alone.
Each time we visit, our purpose and plan is to meet their needs, however we are able. Many times, we provide food and financial assistance. We also bring man-power to fix , what is broken or to build something that is needed.
Our numerous volunteers and teams throughout the year provide presents, play games, offer ice cream (a rare treat for many children), play music, kick soccer balls, and bring clothing. Each visit is planned as something special so that we can communicate to every orphan that they are not alone.
In several orphanages, we visit weekly to play, have a snack, worship and hear about God’s word. We also bring groceries to them each month, as many of the facilities do not enough financial support to provide for the children.
You can get involved in these visits! Join us on a team, or come as a volunteer to help us bring joy and hope to abandoned children in Ecuador.
