El Cielo Para los Niños de Ecuador is a nonprofit foundation established by Zorayda Figueroa, Psy. D. in 1967. The idea of starting the organization sprung up from the high need for proper medical attention, especially among disadvantaged children. Sufficient medical resources and social welfare are not readily available in rural and remote areas, making it impossible for kids to receive proper treatment for their ailment or congenital disorder.
Hence, Fundación El Cielo Para los Niños calls out to kind-hearted individuals worldwide to assist with our projects and offer children a better chance at leading happier and more enriching lives. We launch medical missions across Ecuador, including in the Galapagos Islands. These are joined by surgeons, doctors, and other specialists as well as volunteers and translators who all share their time and expertise for weeks or even a year. We also organize programs aimed at women in penitentiaries, the homeless, orphans, and people with AIDS.
