Lorna Hayward of Wellesley is working to raise funds to bring Juan Carlos to Boston for a week of professional development in November 2014.
Carlos is the physical therapist at For His Children in Ecuador. According to the organization’s website, For His Children is an evangelical Christian residential ministry to homeless children with normal needs and special needs in Ecuador. Currently, 40 to 50 children are cared for in two residential care homes in north-east Quito and a home in Latacunga, in the Province of Cotopaxi.
“Expanding his knowledge will help all the kids in Quito and Latacunga,” Hayward said.
The goal is $2,000. So far, $175 has been raised.To donate, visit http://www.gofundme.com/3rjxys.
