This is just a short snap shot into one families life in Lucena village. They live on $1.50 a day, sometimes less. This means that this mother had to choose between medical treatment for herself and for her son. After giving birth to her son she tried to go back to work too soon and went into relapse. She is still too weak to go back to work and she’s not getting stronger. This means she can’t work and the whole family is relying on their father’s income, who works hard as a painter but see’s irregular work.

Arth-Uhan, her son, has balance issues and needs regular medical attention, so she takes him to the hospital over herself.
