The Cuenca Soup Kitchen’s focus is to give families a hand up through targeted food distribution. This initiative has impacted 1,000s of vulnerable people in and around Cuenca, Ecuador. This year CSK continued this goal…and much more! CSK’s Hygiene Product and Education initiative joined the Aubuelita’s Birthday program (providing birthdays for each child in the program) and the Heartstings program (knitting for babies, seniors, and the vulnerable). CSK continued to work with Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the latest project (to reduce CSK’s eco-footprint) is up for the coveted President’s award. Disaster relief included both short term as well as long term sustainable solutions for Marianza, a small town devastated by landslides. CSK teamed with the US Consul General to provide school supplies to all of the school-age children in the program, helping to ensure a better future for them. Reading glasses were distributed to adults in need. CSK volunteers and beneficiaries celebrated Mother’s Day, Children’s Day and are preparing to celebrate Christmas. To implement these goals CSK partnered with other organizations, businesses, artists, and individuals. All of this was accomplished while keeping the focus firmly on the tons of food CSK distributes each month.
