Our team will head to the Amazon region of Ecuador, staying in a town called Sucúa. There we will work with missionaries Joil and Leah Marbut, who minister to the Shuar and Achuar people in villages surrounding Sucúa, as well as run Hope House, a home for displaced girls, many of whom are victims of trafficking and abuse. Our team’s focus will be narrowed as we assess the gifts and passions of the team members participating. Project possibilities include a women’s health/awareness clinic to help prevent trafficking in the larger community (to raise tracking awareness to the girls in the village that they aren’t able to help at the Hope House), medical clinic/sanitation seminars in villages (this would involve hiking to nearby villages for day trips), installing clean water filters in villages, clinics or seminars for the girls at the Hope House, and/or light construction.
Leaders: Christina Borja and Helen Taylor
