Together for the dreams of our children.

Dear community,

We would love to inspire you with the encouraging story of “Rosita”, a teenager beneficiary of one of Hearts of Gold Program “All Children Deserve to Dream”.

The saddest moment of my life was losing my leg due to a serious illness. I love sports, my favorite is soccer and cycling and my favorite team is Barcelona from Spain. Months ago, Hearts of Gold started to fulfill the dreams of the children of my foundation. I wait and wait and finally the big day came.

They gave me a beautiful red bike. To be honest, I was a little scared to fall but with confidence, I keep pedaling and now I spent my afternoons on my bike with my brothers and family.

I want to say thank you to Hearts of Gold to fulfill my dream. I don’t like to cry but that day I cried of happiness; this is the first time that I experienced tears of happiness.

Thank you so much to the godfathers and godmothers who made possible my dream. I hope you continue with more and more children’s dreams, so they feel the same happiness and joy as me.

Our commitment is to continue with our dreams program. Please join this initiative, become a godfather or godmother.

Help Help me help Naomi to fight leukemia

Hello everyone, I hope you are well, writes Nathaly Vivas. Some of you know me as Chef Nathaly.

Naomi lives in Venezuela.
Last year my Niece was diagnosed with leukemia and some of you helped me. That time was a very difficult time for our family as we did not know how difficult this situation was and for all that our baby only 2-years old would have to go through. Thanks to you and the help of our family Naomi started her treatment on time and now that it has been almost a year and our baby is 3-years old, we are asking for the help of anyone who can help us either with a collaboration or by sharing our campaign.

Naomi has fought this year day by day with this disease and doctors say that God and the Universe are helping us and her treatment is taking effect now we need to continue treatment but we really need the help of anyone who can collaborate

We have created a campaign to raise funds so that we can continue to fight with this disease. We trust in God and that all this will end one day, and that our baby will be cancer-free and ready to continue her life and continue to discover the world.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation and I know that the universe will reward you for it.

I attach some photos. The first few are from the first few days of treatment and the last few are from these last days.

Giving new purpose to things you no longer need

What does Hogar de Esperanza do with your donations of clothing and household items? First and foremost, we give them away to those who are most in need of them with great care taken to ensure that nothing goes to waste. Any extra items are sold in Esperanza Thrift Shop, where all of the proceeds go back into supporting the foundation’s mission of helping those in greatest need.

Are you moving soon – perhaps across town or maybe even back home – and you have items that you can’t take with you? Do you wish you had someone to come carry away those items remaining after your moving sale, that you don’t know what to do with? Were you just spring-cleaning last week, and came across clothes in your closets that you no longer wanted? If you would like to do some incredible things with those items you no longer need or want, let us turn them into something valuable to help those in need.

We accept anything that you wish to donate, and put it to immediate use. You can come by Esperanza Thrift Shop, which is located at 8-18 Juan Montalvo y Mariscal Sucre, to drop off items Monday through Friday from 10 AM – 5 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM – 2 PM. We also do pick-ups of donations, so feel free to contact us to arrange a time. Thank you so much for your support of Hogar de Esperanza – we could not do any of this without you.

Two young and bonded female tabbies for adoption

Two adorable female, one-year-old bonded tabbies are in need of a new home.

Both are spayed and have all their vaccines. They’ve always been inside, and have rarely seen anyone outside the home, so may be quite shy at first. They love to sit on laps, often together, and are quite cuddly. Expect they would be with others once they were acquainted.

Seven is large and very cuddly, likes to give nose kisses. Maze is tiny and shyer, doesn’t like to be petted on her back, but will roll over and let her belly be stroked after a few tail pets. Maze has a fluffy tail, white paws and large eyes. She likes to jump. Seven is a typical gray tabby with a fairly muscular build. Seven is overall more friendly and likes morning nose kisses, but both like to have lap naps. And Maze is oddly fond of belly rubs occasionally. They get along very well, sleep together, eat together out of the same bowl.

They will come with a large bag of their favorite food, litter box, flea treatments for possible future needs. They don’t have any fleas now and have been given the long-term treatment and the house is flea free. Also, a carrier and several toys. They prefer rubber bands though.

Need driver from Puerto Lopez to Cuenca

Hello everybody,

I’ve already searched “drivers” but haven’t found what I’m looking for, specifically someone to pick me up in Puerto Lopez and bring me and my 11 kg well-behaved dog and some luggage back to Cuenca, around June 25th.

Can you help my friend?

A little while ago, I asked for help for my friend. Specifically, she needs to work in the afternoons. She lost her husband, has two school-age children, and her morning job only pays $200 – not enough to keep a roof over her head and the children fed. Please contact me if you have any jobs she could do for you.

What can she do? She doesn’t speak English but is able to use Google Translate. She can tutor, cook, clean, and do gardening or other tasks around the home or office. There is nothing like having a native speaker of Spanish assist your child with their Spanish classes. If you can’t employ her for a whole week, even an afternoon or two would help and hopefully someone else could employ her the other days.

Thank you for caring.

Recommendation for Dr. Marco Encalada, dentist

As you know, the Rolls Royce is the best automobile, I give the same rating for Dr Marco Encalada, who is doing my implants for me. No pain – nothing. His professional manners are outstanding and the quality of his workmanship is impeccable. I highly recommend him. He was referred to me by my Ecuadorian friend whose family use him. If you’re looking for quality and professional work, he is your dentist. If you’re looking for food stamp prices move on. Quality costs.

Recommendation for Hotel Rione

My daughter and I are staying there awaiting a flight to the States. We have been served very well by this hotel staff and the cleanliness and attractiveness of the facility. A free, delicious breakfast is served guests until 10 each morning, we got coffee service (free) on demand in the attractive, well-managed dining room, housekeeping staff did excellent work, and the people managing at the desk went out of their way to accommodate our needs, always with a smile. English is spoken here. This is a well-managed place with a cafeteria serving three meals a day, in a convenient location, staffed by wonderful, caring people. Secure parking is available as well. You will like this hotel.

Thai Connection specials

Facts about Thailand: 

Showing respect for another person’s head is imperative in Thailand. The head is considered to be the most important part of the body, and so Thai culture forbids touching anyone on the head (even a child). Should you meet someone who is older or more important than you, it is best to lower your head in deference to show proper respect. 

Come and enjoy our specials of the week: 

Shrimp Fried Rice with Basil. $8.50 
Drunken Noodles $8.50 
Spicy Korean Ramen $8.50 
Sweet and sour Pork $8.50 

Of course our delicious Carrot Cake and authentic Thai Iced Tea.
