The Cuenca Soup Kitchen continues to keep its focus firmly on distributing tons of food to the needy and vulnerable in Cuenca, Ecuador. Food is the foundation but we know that our beneficiaries often need more so we deliver. Health, hygiene, and the health of the planet are priorities and so we have teamed with GelWear, an Ecuadorian company to provide all of the babies in our program with reusable and biodegradable diapers. $100 provides a diaper kit that will last for 2.5 to 3 years. For $30 CSK provides reusable feminine hygiene kits that will last for 5 years. The hygiene program joins HeartStrings which provides warm hats, scarves, and blankets for the young, the sick, and the vulnerable. Our Birthday Abuelita program continues to provide every child with a “birthday in a bag” so that families can celebrate those special moments together. Children’s Day, Christmas, and providing school supplies are important ongoing initiatives. Giving a hand up rather than a hand out with these programs helps CSK beneficiaries better their lives and their futures.
