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.
