Urgent – Reliable lady seeks part time employment assistance

My friend is looking for work from 2 to 6 PM. She is a 42-year old teacher with two teenagers who is currently earning a measly $200 a month. Her husband suffered from leukemia for a long time and has now died. She has to pay medical bills for him and is struggling just to make ends meet on that salary. Her children are in school and she works in the morning but needs a job in the afternoon to provide enough income for the family to eat properly and have the bare essentials, and to help pay the bills. She doesn’t speak English but is able to use Google Translate.

She can cook, teach, clean, and do gardening or other tasks around the home or office. 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. If you have a heart to help, please contact me. She has her own home, so is not looking for a place to live – she needs an income producing position.

Thank you.

Seeking afternoon employment helping you or your children

On-line learning is a real challenge for youngsters and if they are English speaking with classes in Spanish, it can be even worse. Why not ask a real, live teacher to come to your home to tutor them? Or, if it works out better for you, she could tutor on line using Zoom – she has experience with that. She has her own children, so knows how to reach a child. Sometimes all it takes to help a child is someone who is there just for that child and is able to focus exclusively on them.

A big thank you and an update on Ginger

For those who remember Ginger, you’ll recall she was hit by a car, removed from the road and carried back to safety in a wheelbarrow a few weeks ago. The concerned resident could not afford veterinary care and Ginger suffered for two weeks with broken bones protruding from her left arm.

That’s when Patan Rescue was contacted and they took action to get Ginger the help she so desperately needed. Patan implemented a fundraising campaign so that Dr. Gallardo, could purchase the necessary supplies for surgery to save the arm.

After a number of days it became evident that Ginger’s surgery was not successful and her arm would have to be amputated. She has endured so much suffering in her young life. She spent over a month at the vet clinic.

The good news is, thanks to your generous donations, that she is recovering nicely and doing very well now. Animals do exceptionally well with missing limbs, due to lack of ego. She will be a normal little girl in every way.

We’re hoping to find this sweet soul a permanent or foster home until she can be adopted. She is about 1-year-old, spayed, vaccinated, wormed and weighs about 8 kg. We do expect her to fill out some but she is and will continue to be a very manageable size doggie.

Would you be willing to adopt or foster Ginger? Do you know someone with a big heart who would step up for this innocent creature?

Thank you for your continued support of Patan Rescue Group. Donations may be made via Paypal through the account of Barbara Suderman.

Only four A.C.T. Angel spots left

We want to thank everyone who responded to our call for Angels to help the Azuay Community Theater continue through 2021.

As you know, due to COVID, Azuay Community Theater has had virtually no income for the past year. Even with help from our landlady over the last six months, our coffers are near empty and we must renew our lease at the end of March. While we have future productions in preparation, COVID restrictions and our concern for the safety of our audiences currently restrict future shows to 30 attendees per performance.

Therefore, in order to commit to a new lease, we need a base of funds to support our 2021 season. We have been seeking 25 A.C.T. Angels to commit to a $10 or $20 donation for each of the next 12 months. Thanks to the response we have received there are only 4 slots left!

In addition to the satisfaction of keeping A.C.T. alive for the next year, each $10 Angel will have the opportunity to buy two tickets per production prior to public sale. Each $20 (or more!) per month Angel will also receive a handsome ACT mug to remind them of their generous support of the arts with every morning’s coffee or tea (act fast, supplies are limited).

With only 30 seats per performance, we expect shows to sell out quickly, and, because of the limited seating, we must keep the number of Angels at 25.

If you wish to become one of our final four A.C.T. Angels, please email azuaycommunitytheater@gmail.com!

Water pressure pump

Hello,

Our house is three or four stories, depending on how you count them, and the water pressure is weak. The problem with weak water pressure is that the calefon (the water heater) requires water pressure to turn on. So, we end up taking cold showers if someone runs the hot water in the kitchen, the clothes washer or even flushes a toilet. While cold showers might be refreshing back in Texas, here in Cuenca it’s a bit chilly.

I’ve been told that you can buy a water pump that will increase water pressure and eliminate this problem. Our first home here in Cuenca had the same issue and I have long suspected it’s a common problem. If that’s true, then perhaps someone has dealt with this problem and can offer some advice in terms of cost and who helped them install the pump.

Writing this and asking for advice on this forum reminds me how different things are here in Cuenca where so many depend on this forum for answers to such a wide variety of questions. I can’t think of a similar resource back home and that just struck me as both a bit sad and a bit glad. We don’t have a lot of close friends here but it feels like we have a lot of people we can depend on for questions like this and others.

It’s a good feeling. But I can’t help wondering what drives so many of us to participate in things like GringoPost. Is it the commonality of being foreigners in a strange land? I get the buy and sell stuff aspect. But the lengths some go to help is sometimes impressive.

We are leaving for the USA on Saturday and with a little luck, will be back in two weeks assuming things don’t change too much with regard to Covid.

Good luck to us all.

Thanks,

Wire dog crates . . . tennis balls — anybody?

It would be a huge favor to our household if you would give or sell a medium-size dog crate. Not an airline crate, but one that looks like this (I’ll try to put a photo below). If the photo doesn’t take, just understand I don’t want plastic anywhere, just plain wire, with one or two doors and a slide-out tray on the bottom. The dimensions should be approx 36 inches x 28 inches x 25 inches (90cm de ancho x 70cm de alto y x 62cm de profundidad). The size approximates what a Labrador retriever might be comfortable in.

I could also be talked into a smaller crate for a second, smaller dog.

And still, always, looking for tennis balls (the pro kind, not the kind sold in pet stores).

Thanks so much.

Looking for a translator/interpreter? Are you struggling with internet?

I am Maria Penafiel, a law student. A little background about myself: I am 24-years old, and I speak fluent English, along with that I have also studied German, and as of now, I am studying Italian. I love diversity which is why I love to travel. I have been to Italy, the US, and also have traveled within Ecuador. I’ve been to the Galapagos, the Amazon, Chimborazo, Quito and Banos de Ambato. My beautiful country is full of diversity and I am excited for you to get to experience it. I am already planning my upcoming trip. I am currently working in a local law firm while working on my thesis (Senior project as you might know it), so I’m almost ready to get my law degree.

I have many different work experiences such as labor law, family, company incorporation, civil and criminal issues, and mediation. I have experience in translating legal or non-legal documents. Therefore, I can assist or advise and translate papers that you need to do at the notary’s office, but my experience is not limited to law; if you have any day-to-day errands and the language barrier is an issue, I can help you with it.

I can help you with real estate, leaving the country, buying or renting apartments, houses, vehicles. Also, I know you deserve to get the service that you have paid for, therefore, I can help you communicate with any company and/or person that you might need. I am not a health insurance agent and do not represent any company but speak English fluently. If your agent is not helpful, I can advocate on your behalf to get the health care benefits you deserve.

I do not solve Internet problems, but I can help you deal with the Internet provider to report slow Internet or Internet cuts. I can help you with any difficulty you may have with service bills, telephone plans, electricity or water bills, coordination between hospitals and health insurance plans, etc. Don’t miss those special promotions. As you might know, Internet/cable services and many more, have special sales when you ask for it. I can help you look for a cheaper alternative that is better suited for you. So don’t be shy. I can intermediate as an interpreter to get the best deal for you. If you need to shop or go out on the town and need a translator, I can help you to break the language barrier.

I charge $9.50 an hour, but if you need more than two hours you can get a discount. If we need to go in person to an office and you need transportation we can go in my car, it will be an extra (but usually it is minimal). Rest assured that we have all the security measures in place, we protect you and ourselves. I’m happy to help you in any way I can.

I can come for you or we can meet at a specific place in the city. Let’s get you the best “Cuencana” experience.

Let me be your translator and advocate, I want to be able to help you so you can communicate.
