Each week between 60 to 95 refugees go to Pan de Vida for assistance. Pan de Vida means Bread of Life and is a ministry for the homeless in Quito. The rainy season begins in January and peaks in April. Rain ponchos, light gloves and socks are needed to protect the refugees from the cool, damp weather. Below is a list of items needed. These items will be personally delivered by the Mission Team traveling to Quito in January.
