Cristian Pila of Quito Receives Gifts – Ecuador

Dorothee Clinton won one of our recent raffles and decided to donate her prize to her sponsor child, Cristian Pila of Ecuador.

He has received gifts from Dorothee’s generous donations. Cristian and his family came to the Quito Children International office to receive their gifts. Dorothee’s gift provided some much needed food and cleaning products for Cristian and his family.

Cristian lives with his grandmother and aunt. They had very little food in the home when Children International’s local staff visited them. When Cristian came to CI’s office to receive the food and cleaning items, he asked “Where is my sponsor?” His grandmother told him that she was far away but that she gave all of this to him because she loves him very much. He told his grandmother and the staff that he “wanted to hug his sponsor.”
