I have been spending have a year in Ecuador. I stayed with an Ecuadorian family and was treated like a son. My host family became my second family. My host father is the founder and owner of a social organisation that helps the very poor collection donations all over the world and financing development projects like building schools. They also give volunteers the oportunity to work in orphonates and take care of street children. My host father doesn't earn enough to live with that job but his goal is to help the people in need. Three years ago the brother of my host father died because of stomach cancer and left two little children and his wife. Now my host father also tries to take care about them. Some days ago my host mother got the diagnosis of thyroid cancer and now needs an expensive surgery and maybe some additional therapies. She has two children but no money. The surgery will cost around 12'000 US Dollars. Now is the day that my Ecuadorian family needs help. They have been fighting for years for the poorest people in Ecuador and now they are in this situation. Please help me to help them. It's Christmas and time to help the people that were always helping the poorest and now are in need of help as well.
