Once again, Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil’s actions in health have been fundamental to those who during this pandemic look for care in its hospitals which had to adapt, prepare and implement protocols for the safety of patients as well as for their staff so to avoid contagion. In Alfredo Paulson Hospital, 998 babies were born during the critical months from March to May 2020 during the health emergency. These births were a challenge for doctors and staff because from March to December 82 patients with Covid- 19 were treated and 52 were pregnant. In 2020, 5.910 babies were born. Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil’s director, Juan Xavier Cordovez, has been in charge of the organization since June 2020, and has been working hard in strengthening the social work for the most in need. An example of his efforts is the support of approximately 200 girls who receive education, shelter, food, and clothing in the Calderón Ayluardo Home in Guayaquil; and, the Manuel Galecio Home in Alausí, where 49% of the scholarship recipients are from the Amazon Region, 35% from the Highlands of The Andes and 20 % from the provinces of Guayas, Los Ríos and Esmeraldas. Another example of the social work being done, is attention the residents of the Institute of Neurosciences receive. Most of them having been abandoned so have been in our institution for many years. Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil, has been working since 1888, therefore for 133 years. Always helping, always looking for modernization and in a permanent search for resources so much so to allow the organization to continue helping those who need health, education, as well as protection to children and elderly. Lottery and real estate rental are important sources that help to finance Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil’s social work.
