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. https://hogaresperanza.org/en/donations/

Rent and home insurance by Bluebox

“Bluebox, the expat one choice for all their insurances needs”

With less than the cost of a coffee you could protect your home against all risks. The biggest mistake we make many times is to think that unforeseen events cannot happen to us. We assume that everything will be fine, and in part that is the best way to live, but what happens when you face that unforeseen event far away, and that earthquake ends up fragmenting the structure of your home and you are not insured, or if that friend of the stranger decides to enter your home and snatch your belongings, what to do?

Bluebox Asesores has been in the insurance market for almost a decade, in which it has gained enough experience to recommend you to contract a renter’s insurance as soon as possible, since this type of insurance with minimum annual payments can be very useful when you feel vulnerable.
A renter’s insurance can save you from trouble, do not hesitate any longer. We have what you are looking for at the best price. We have our own product for expats that will insure your contents and your structure, which will allow you to be protected against any event of nature, theft, fire, flood, water damage, rain damage, electrical damage and others.

Note: the value of your policy will depend on the value of your contents and structure. Jewelry and works of art are not insurable.

The Battle of Pichincha, May 24, 1822 – driving around?

Cuenca Car Share would like to invite you to enjoy the 3-day holiday weekend of May 22-24 with a rented car. Barring any lockdowns, you can get out of the city and travel on this day dedicated to the soldiers who fell in battle on the flanks of the Pichincha volcano overlooking Quito.

In Cuenca, you probably have visited Parque Calderon – named for the native Cuencano, Abdón Calderón Garaycoa who died shortly after the battle where he was wounded 4 times but refused to leave the battle. You have traveled along Sucre street in downtown Cuenca – remember? It was named for General Sucre, the general in charge of liberating Cuenca and Quito and defeating the Spanish armies. Read up on this – it is quite a good history about the liberation of Gran Colombia and, eventually, Ecuador from Spanish rule.

If you want to rent a car for this weekend, please contact me at Cuenca Car Share as soon as possible to ensure that one is available. Remember that banks and many businesses will be closed on Monday, May 24 – plan ahead. Thank you.

Expat Envoy – update to service

Good day everyone…

Some of you may have already heard, but for those of you who haven’t, I will be moving to the US in June.
This will not affect Expat Envoy.
We won’t stop, or be delayed, at all.
We’ve been running non-stop since the lockdown lifted last year, and we have no plans of slowing any time soon.

Everything regarding Expat Envoy will remain the same, except for the pickup location within Cuenca.
(It is nearby, and will be provided in the standard monthly pickup/delivery emails.)

I’ve had a few people email me asking if June would be my last delivery… It’s not.
I may be moving, but the business will remain.
If anything, come July/August, the cutoff dates should be closer to the availability date, no more need to “check with us beforehand”, and we may begin offering “custom shopping” within the US.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me ask.

Have a great week.

Because of the recent quarantine restrictions, we have had to change the date of our Gran Feria from Saturday, May 15th, to Saturday, May 29th from 10 AM to 2 PM. Also, during this time, we will be taking “Build-Your-Own Basket” orders for deliveries on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Now, in addition to El Mundo Orgánico’s wide selection of beautiful, freshly-picked organic vegetables and natural fruits for your Build-Your-Own Basket for home delivery, El Mundo Orgánico has a wide selection of nuts and dried fruits.



A chiropractor can help you stay healthy, feel great and well-adjusted

My name is Dr. Duane H. Connell D.C.

I ran a family chiropractic practice for over 20 years in Virginia and I have relocated to Cuenca. I do primarily hands-on adjusting and I use a variety of techniques including Gonstead, Divirsified, Drop Table, Toggle and Biophysics.

For those who prefer a more gentle touch I am also proficient in Activator Technique.

The first visit includes a consult, exam and one adjustment for $25. Future visits are $15.

Please feel free to contact me with WhatsApp with any questions or to make an appointment.

Thank you and see you soon.
