Joel (Joel Fernando Shiguango Grefa) is 8 years old and lives in the plains of Tena in the rainforest area of Ecuador in South America. Most adults in the area work on farms, looking after animals or crops and earn very little; about £150 per month. Joel’s father works but his mother does not and so they have great difficulty in making ends meet.  In order for Joel to get a good education he goes to the local church project which is where we come in. Through the charity ‘Compassion’, we send money on a monthly basis to support Joel at school and in his time at the project. We now have a collecting box in each classroom where the children may put small gifts of money to help with this work. We welcome all gifts, a penny from a few soon mounts up! Many thanks for your support.
