At 90 years old, Doña Bacila feels exhausted by life.

She’s tired of working - midwifery is a wildly demanding job, with some deliveries enduring for days, through night’s most wicked hours. She would love to be able to retire, but she can’t afford to. She’s tried to lobby for recognition by the government, hoping to get the retirement that she deserves for over 65 years of service to her community, but she’s always denied a proper pension. We believe that she deserves a break, don't you? Donations of any amount go a long way.
