Friends of the Campo

Feed the Campo 2020--

The year 2020 has been unlike any other. We have seen unprecedented civic, moral, social, and personal challenges the likes of which few of us have ever experienced.

For those of us living in Ecuador, we can see firsthand the suffering that these challenges have wrought. Whether it is in the work-hardened hand reaching out in a humiliating plea for help, or the tear-stained face of a hungry street child, we see the terrible consequences produced by a year’s worth of disasters.

Hidden Suffering
Despite the obvious suffering of those in the streets, one group of Ecuadorians have largely suffered in silence—the families of the countryside. As an avid hiker I have spent a fair amount of time in the campo and personally witnessed what small, one-time gifts of food can bring to these isolated communities. I will never forget the pure joy on the face of a little boy when he received his very first orange.

The Plan
This holiday season a small group of like-minded gringitos and Cuencanos (including Esteban & Giselle  Arévalo) have decided to make a concrete expression of our gratitude for having survived the whims of 2020. In a small way, we want to help to people of the campo understand that they are not alone, and that a larger community stands beside them as they face their own trials.

How You Can Make an Impact
We are frankly NOT looking for mega donners for this endeavor. Rather, we are more interested in the volume of participation, than we are in the volume of dollars contributed. Your $25 dollar contribution will feed approximately one family and bring a small ray of sunshine into their lives (and yours as well). With your $25 contribution we will purchase a “basket” of food staples like cooking oil, rice, and flour for each family. We expect to reach about 75 to 100 families, and if funds and generosity permit, we will also provide some toys and other holiday treats for the children of these rural communities.
