2020 Amigo Bike Project:
SUPPORT REFUGEE FAMILIES IN ECUADOR
As refugee numbers and needs continue to grow, the Quito Mennonite Church is expanding their ministry to people arriving in Quito from Venezuela, Colombia and other parts of the world – providing a space of relief, acceptance and building a peaceful community for all.
With your support, up to 60 families at a time will receive a monthly food basket for a period of six months. Each family is visited in their home to verify their information, evaluate emerging needs and supply additional aid as needed, including blankets, mattresses, stoves, gas tanks, reusable cloth diapers, small business grants, rent assistance, medications or school supplies.
In addition, monthly workshops for women, children and youth help address emotional and spiritual needs of refugee and Ecuadorian families. The workshops are attended by a mix of Ecuadorian and refugee families to encourage integration and exchanges of experience. Some topics are managing trauma and stress, resolving conflicts without violence and creating income-generating handicrafts.
How can you help? $75 provides one food basket and needed supplies for a refugee family. Total annual amount needed for this project: US $96,600
