MiKiDo Foundation

Impacting Ecuador

Ecuador, home to the Hess family, has always been a special place filled with tight knit communities. This small South American country filled with so much love is also a third world country that has high poverty rates. 

Since 1995, the MiKiDo Foundation have been sponsoring, “Valley Feliz”an orphanage in Santo Domingo, Ecuador. They make yearly donations of clothes, schools supplies, food, medical supplies. In 2009 we were able to donate a refrigerator. Our impact is not only in Santo Domingo but also in the outskirts of Pangua, Ecuador.

With the funds received and the help from volunteers we were able to distribute a much-needed care package and handmade masks to low income residents in Pangua, Ecuador. These packages are made and delivered monthly. What goes in side depend on the season and what is most needed. 

The year 2020 has been a rough year for all especially to those that have lost their jobs and are not able to recover financially. We are grateful to be able to give give to those that needed it the most.

All of our donations are sent with care a lot of love. We also enjoy giving notes of encouragement. Our care packages are made and sent with the goal of making a difference and impacting the lives of those who need it.
