Let's Help Luchito/ Ayuda a Luchito

Luchito Vivanco has Down Syndrome, which makes him very special to his friends and family who have always given him all the love and attention that he needs. How can they not, when he is a sweet, loving boy who evokes tenderness and affection at first sight.

Unexpectedly on May 8th, 2017, his mom and main caregiver, “la Veja,” as he used to call her affectionately, passed away. Since then, his world has been turned upside down.

Luchito turned 64 on February 15th.  ,   2017.  For someone with his condition, having reached this age is a miracle and what we believe is also a direct result of the unconditional and selfless care that his mom, Ana Cristina,  gave him until the very last day.

Due to his condition, Luchito suffers from premature aging which causes physical and mental issues characteristic of people with Down Syndrome.   

As a result we need to hire qualified caretakers who can provide the necessary care and attention that he needs daily.  This unfortunately is a high cost to meet.

His siblings have taken responsibility for his care without hesitation. But due their work responsibilities they are unable to take care of him themselves.

That’s why we are turning to you so that with your help, we can provide Luchito the care that he needs and give him the quality of life his mom always intended.


Luchito Vivanco tiene Sindrome de Down y eso lo hace muy especial para su familia y amigos quien siempre le han dado toda el amor y atencion que el necesita.  Como no hacerlo si el es un ser dulce, amoroso que insipira ternura con solo verlo.

 “La Veja” Como el le decia, su mama, su compañera, su vida entera, la que estaba disponible y pendiente de el siempre, fallecio inesperadamente en Mayo 8/2017.  Desde ese momento su  mundo cambio inesperadamente. 

Luchito cumplio 64 años en Febrero 15/2017.  Tener esta edad para su condicion es un milagro de Dios y el resultado del cuidado abnegado de su mama Ana Cristina hasta su ultimo dia.

Debito a su condicion, Luchito sufre de envejecimiento prematuro lo que conlleva problemas fisicos y mentales carectiristicos del Sindrome de Down.

Por esta razon necesitmos contratar personas capacitadas para su cuidado quienes le puedan proveer la atencion que necesita diariamente, desafortunadamente a un muy alto costo.

Sus hermanos sin dudarlo se han responsabilizado de su cuidado.  Pero debido a sus responsabilidades laborales, no pueden cuidarlo ellos mismos.

Es por eso que estamos  acudiendo a ti, para que con tu ayuda, juntos podamos proveer el cuidado que el necesita y darle la calidad de vida que su mama siempre intento darle.
