COVID test on Sunday

I was just wondering if anybody knows of a lab in Cuenca that is open on a Sunday to get a rapid Covid test to travel back to the USA? Or one that will come to your home on a Sunday to do the rapid test? Any help is appreciated.

2022 a year of education

For our community assistance program, we want 2022 to be a year full of learning for both our beneficiaries and ourselves. For this we have achieved new alliances for the benefit of our partner organizations and beneficiaries of the food kits program. To start this new year the first alliance is with the University of Cuenca with the language department, with the project of teaching English to children and adolescents at risk and vulnerability, where in addition to learning English they will learn about diversity, interculturalism and awareness.

Dear friends, stay tuned to each of our news, and we invite you to be ambassadors of change, because together we transform lives and we are the change.

Police asking for ID

Today, Thursday I was walking across San Francisco plaza and was stopped by two national police, a man and a woman. They spoke rapid Spanish but I got the gist of what they wanted. I showed my cedula, my vaccination record, and my US Passport card. I was fine with that until the woman started taking pictures of the items.

I asked Sara Chaca, who agreed it is a bit worrisome. She said that if anyone encounters a similar situation, get their names and badge numbers.

So, what does a soup kitchen do?

While the purpose of a soup kitchen is to provide a nutritious meal, they are also an important entry point to services for individuals who are homeless or living in poverty. A young mother with four children was brought to Esperanza Food Bank and Soup Kitchen from our community partner in Molleturo. She desperately needed food. First on our list was getting her to a health center where she was given birth control. After a thorough assessment, they ate lunch. and saw our doctor.

The children are severely malnourished, so they were given vitamins and supplements and anti-parasitic medications. The children also got gifts because they missed Christmas. Further medical issues were discovered in two of the children, so HKIE will be helping us with those. They all sleep in a small room on a single mattress with no blankets, so they were given blankets. Our students will do a home visit in the coming week to fully assess the living situation and see how we can help.

They left here with hope, feeling like they mattered and ready for a new start in life. This is what the Hogar de Esperanza is all about. We provide food, but we also partner with over 20 community agencies to give people in need the tools they need to change their lives.

Gramm Bulkshop / Moringa

Dear friends, in our shop we have organic moringa. We share some benefits of it with you:

Also called the “Miracle Tree” and “Tree of Life,” moringa has been heralded as a superfood even more amazing than kale. Research confirms its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and cancer-preventive powers. And it is great for environment too.

According to a Fast Company article, “In a gram-for-gram comparison with kale, moringa has more than twice the protein, six times the iron, and 97 times the vitamin B2.”

Several moringa species are native to South Asia and East Africa, today, it is widely cultivated in other areas around the globe.

Sometimes called the drumstick tree or horseradish tree. The leaves are edible fresh or used as a powder when dried and ground up. They are rich in vitamins, essential minerals, and antioxidative phytocompounds like polyphenols and carotenoids.

Moringa leaves also contain more than four times as much calcium and 25 times as much iron as spinach. It contains minerals that are essential for growth and development. Plus, the plant is high in fiber, which makes your microbiome happy.

In addition to providing vital food and medicine, moringa seeds can purify water.

You can add moringa powder to your smoothies now.

We want to reduce the use of plastic, we use paper covers and we invite you to bring your favorite bag, as well as your containers to fill them with the necessary amount.

Rafael came into my life in December, on the high recommendation of Daphne (aka Dyann Cook aka “garden goddess”, the garden “go-to” for many gringos here in Cuenca), who was herself on holiday. Specifically, she said: “You won’t be disappointed.” And I wasn’t.

She has a penchant for physical comedy, easily identified with some of the greats of yesteryear, and rivaled by few of her contemporaries.
