Wood Carvings for Sale

Washington Zambrano brought some wood carvings from Otavalo Ecuador the last time he visited the United States on a Charity Anywhere trip. His intentions were to sell these carvings to help cover the cost of the trip. We still have a few of these hand carved statues left to sell. For those of you that have traveled to Otavalo, this might be your last chance to purchase one of these wood sculptures made in Ecuador. Below are the links to the carvings we have left. The money you spend on these carvings will go directly back to Washington Zambrano and the CAF Foundation in Ecuador.

A HUGE thank you!!!

Hello, Washington. I have thought of you and Julio and your many partners in the work you do in Ecuador many times in the past ten days! Todd and I and our entire team can not ever thank you enough for providing us with the opportunity to work side by side with so many amazing people to help many other hard-working people in Esmeraldas. In addition to giving us many different opportunities to work meaningfully, you also organized trips to Mindo and Otavalo for us, allowing us to see so much of your beautiful country. I know a number of unexpected changes came up before and during the week, but you always seemed to roll so easily with everything, and your primary concern was always to go far beyond the norm to give us a truly extraordinary visit. I know the week we spent in Ecuador has been a true highlight of our lives. Many, many emails and postings on Facebook have been shared expressing among team members, expressing our gratitude for having had the chance to work with your organization.

I was able to keep a small blog while we were working in Ecuador; if you would like to read that record, you can find it at http://grow09.blogspot.com.

Please know you, your family, and your many partners who “do good” will always be in our thoughts and remembered fondly. We can not express how very much we appreciate your hospitality and tremendous support. You are an inspiration!

Blessings,

Julie Stockwell, Grow, Inc.

Mobile Medical and Dental Clinic

The city of Otavalo has given Charity Anywhere a mobile medical and dental motorhome to serve poor villages. The LDS Church has donated one opthamalogy chair and examination equipment for this medical unit. We have local doctors that will travel with this motorhome to use this new equipment. We always welcome other eye doctors to join our work.

Clinic in Otavalo Ecuador

We have been given a new clinic by the city of Otavalo in Ecuador but we need $40,000 to fund the clinic for a year. We need donations to pay for the rent, utilities, supplies, doctors and dentists. If we are unable to sustain the clinic, it will revert back to the government and we may miss out on a wonderful opportunity to serve the needy families in that area of Ecuador.
