Is growing and expanding its impact on families

By Desmion Dizney | Director

The  Cuenca  Soup  Kitchen is growing and expanding its impact on families in need in Cuenca, Ecuador. Providing food  assistance in the form of food kits to over 850 people is at the core of what we do.

In addition, we continue to grow our commitment to being as eco-friendly as possible. Our newest initiative combines the distribution of reusable and environmentally friendly feminine hygiene  kits with education. This program is geared towards mothers and daughters, ensuring that they both have the same access to  information. The workshops were conducted by Susan Beasley, a pediatrician who volunteers with the Cuenca Soup Kitchen.

These workshops have provided an opportunity to correct misinformation as well as identify and provide support for girls and  women experiencing abuse.

Families come to us when they are struggling to provide for themselves and their families. By providing food assistance we can help to get them back on their feet. Just as importantly, by providing cakes and gifts for the children’s birthdays, we are able to help them maintain a sense of normalcy as they work towards independence. Our “abuelitas” make sure that no child is  forgotten.

By partnering with Hearts of Gold and their social worker, we are able to monitor and provide educational opportunities to the  families we serve. As they become stable they are transitioned out of the program, thereby making room for the next family that needs our services in order to achieve stability.

Finally, the Cuenca Soup Kitchen has continued to provide assistance in natural disasters most recently in the canton of 

Sayausi after a series of landslides destroyed homes, and farms.

The Cuenca Soup Kitchen is poised to continue to help those in need work towards stability and self-sufficiency
