a traditional meal in Ecuador in ' el dia de los disfuntos ' or ' el dia de los muertos ' on November 2 in Ecuador. Purple Colada is a typical drink from Ecuador. This is prepared with purple corn flour, which gives it its thick consistency and accentuates the color that gives name to this drink. It also carries fruits such as naranjilla, pineapple, mora or mortiño and a series of aromatic herbs and crusts, such as cinnamon, and other sweet spices. In the tradition they serve it together with the bread dolls(bread usually of non-ordinary flavor and various fillings that have shape of doll, hence the name). In the case of indigenous communities in the Andean Region, especially in rural areas as in the province of tungurahua, their consumption and offering is performed in the cemetery itself, next to the tomb of the deceased family as part of the rite of reunion with The ancestors.

Some of our kids have a sponsor! every three months, these sponsors get an update from us. We're working on these updates right now. This school year we have received many new children, so there are children who do not yet have a sponsor. Maybe you're interested? We'll introduce you to Neythan and Eileen. If you want to know more about sponsoring a child, you can contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks to Wings of Support we could replace our roof this summer. Very nice because now we don't have any leakage anymore, no unnecessary luxury with the often impetuous weather in the rainy season. In addition, there is now more sunlight, and therefore warmth inside! We are very happy! Muchas gracias!!

Let us introduce you to Victoria and Mercedes! These twins are four years old, they were born way too early, they've been in the incubator for three months. One of the girls already has open-heart surgery in her short life and the other has chronic anaemia, fortunately they now have a safe place at villa ticca. Nice detail: the ministry of education has referred mother to us because they are very pleased about the help and care we offer to our children, a nice compliment!
